Abortion Story: Goshen, Indiana
Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on November 11, 2013.
Two years ago today, November 11, 2013, I had an abortion. It still hurts just as much now today as it did the day it happened. This abortion was not something I wanted to do, but my boyfriend at the time insisted he knew what was better for me than I did and told me if I didn't do it he would leave me, and I would be alone. I was so wrapped up in the relationship, I didn't want to let him down, so I did what he said. On the drive home, I cried and cried, and he yelled at me and said, "you can't change what happened, so stop crying." The next day he broke up with me, and from that day until about a month ago, he strung me along and told me it was my fault that I went through with the abortion. I have yet to go talk to someone about this sensitive topic because I have not been able to verbally talk about it with anyone and I am afraid to talk about it face to face. I would like to see a day where abortion was done away with so no other girl has to feel this pain. It is one of the worst pains I have felt in my life.
