Abortion Story

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on August 7, 2013.

>

I had an abortion three weeks after my 19th birthday. I had a lot of reasons for going through with the process, mainly because I was young and scared. I deeply wanted to keep the child, but with all of the circumstances I was going through at the time, I thought that it was best to abort it; I couldn't be more wrong. I wish I could say that it gets easier with time, but it doesn't. The pain and regret that I feel intensifies day by day, to the point where I am now numb. I only wish that I gave my child life; I can't believe that I was so selfish and took away my baby's life. I have to live with my decision for the rest of my life, not including the day-to-day struggle of trying to forgive myself.
