Abortion Story: Houston, TX

Submitted to Abort73 by a 16-year-old woman on March 23, 2013.


I had an abortion on the 21st of March, 2013. I regretted it before, during and now. I didn't have a say in what I wanted to do. My mother said, "this is what you will do," and as much as my boyfriend and I told her our plans, she would pass them off as "stupid." During that time, I couldn't stop my self from going to extremes to get some memory om my baby, a 13-week, 4-day old who I named Amy. I looked in my medical file and took a picture of the sonogram to have a little piece of her back. But all that dosen't repair the amount of hurt and sorrow that I feel. My boyfriend had so many plans with Amy. Now they are all gone and only bring tears to our eyes. After the abortion, I didn't remember much because I was sedated and probably passed out, but the emptiness inside me grows each and every day. My boyfriend and I will continue to be together although one child will be missing from every single picture we take. Our lives changed the moment I walked into that room and said my name, birthday, and reason. I regret not standing my ground on behalf of my little Amy. Forever in my heart, Amy Elizabeth.
