Abortion Story: England

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on November 18, 2013.


I recently found out I was 7 weeks pregnant. Two weeks ago, I had an abortion. I'm 20, and even though I knew it was the right thing to do, I don't know how I'm going to get through this. The man whose child it is made it quite clear that he wouldn't be around if I were to have a child, and so that was one of my reasons to go through with it—alongside not being able to financially support a child at this time. However, since he found out I was pregnant and especially after the abortion, he has been so supportive and kind. We are now seeing each other instead of just 'hooking up.' It's really confused me, and even though having someone there is so lovely, I still feel like I can't talk openly about the emotional and physical trauma that went along with it. I'm really struggling. I was always told I couldn't have children, and now I wonder if that was my chance? I miss my child every day—so, so much! The clinic let me keep a picture of the scan, and in a way, I'm glad I have it, but then in other ways I know it doesn't help. If I could go back, I would have never aborted.
