Abortion Story: New Jersey
Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on September 20, 2013.
I'd never imagined having an abortion myself, yet I've advocated a woman's right to chose. I always claimed that "I'm pro-choice, but I would never be able to do it." It's very easy to judge when you're not in the situation. I found out I was pregnant on August 23, 2013. My boyfriend and I have only been together for six months, and his indifference toward my pregnancy only solidified my choice to abort, even though I wanted to keep my baby. I made a snap decision and scheduled my surgical abortion within less than 24 hours. It was only after the procedure, and a hard night of drinking, that my boyfriend explained he had hoped I was going to keep it. I regret what I did, not because of what my boyfriend told me, but because I wanted to keep my baby in first place. This post has nothing to do with pro-life/pro-choice, but rather it's a warning to follow what you really want...
