Abortion Story: Atlanta, GA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 30-year-old man on October 26, 2013.
It was June 2006 when I found out my girlfriend at the time was pregnant. That was the happiest day of my life. I told my co-workers, family, and friends I was gonna be a father. We got a book of baby names and came up with a name. We went window shopping for baby stuff just to estimate the cost. We did not have a lot of money, but my family was willing to help us. I went to look for a second job. After two weeks passed, I was not able to find a second job, which my girlfriend did not like. During the week of July 4th, she threatened to get an abortion if I did not have another job that week. Needless to say, I did not get another job. I begged her not to get the abortion, which she agreed to. That weekend, on a Saturday, she woke me up and said she was not feeling good. Her friend gave us a ride to the "doctor." When we arrived, I did not see a hospital. She told me then that she was getting the abortion, and she lied because if she really told me what her plans were, I would not go. I begged and pleaded with her not to do it, but she ignored me and went through it. Weeks passed and we did not speak. Finally, I asked her why she got the abortion. She told me she had a dream that the baby was born with no arms or legs. That hurt me. Two days later we went our separate ways.
