Abortion Story: Kalamazoo, MI
Submitted to Abort73 by a 54-year-old woman on August 5, 2013.
I became pregnant the summer after I graduated high school. The father of this child, and subsequent ones as well, is the love of my life. However, I didn't realize that then. I had abortions for the following reasons: primarily, I did NOT want to be pregnant before married, also, we used to smoke pot and, in my naive mind, I thought the baby would be deformed because of it , AND, because I thought my dad would freak. I went on to marry a wonderful man (almost 30 years now); we have 2 grown children, but the "love of my life" is STILL the love of my life. And always will be. I don't know how many pregnancies/abortions I had with him. Several. I thought nothing of it at the time (late 70's) BUT IT SICKENS ME NOW. I can barely function lately, thinking about what I did. I SO regret every one of them... all these years later I am filled with regrets because I've always loved the father, and I would give anything to have our children.
