Abortion Story: West Babylon, NY
Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on November 24, 2013.
I don’t know where to start, but here is my story. I was in my 2nd month of beauty school when I found out I was pregnant. I kinda knew I was because I didn't get my period the whole month of August. I told my boyfriend that I might be pregnant. He was hoping I was. On August 19, 2013, I took a pregnancy test on my break, and it turned out to be positive. I took 6 home pregnancy tests and two at a doctor’s office. My boyfriend was so happy that I was pregnant, and I was also. But then I started to think about me finishing school and how I would be able to support this child. Last August, I got the abortion done. It was the WORST 5 minutes of my life. All I can remember is the nurse coming into the room and telling me to get undressed and lay on this bed. Then the doctor came in the room with two other nurses. One gave me anesthesia, so I was in and out. By the time I knew what was happening, the nurse was helping me up and taking me to another room where other ladies were after their abortion. On September 17, I was supposed to go back to school, but I ended up dropping out because I couldn't handle it at the moment. So I never got my certificate in cosmetology. A few weeks later was my 21st birthday, and it was hard to deal with. I couldn't enjoy it because of what I'd done. There’s not a day that goes by that I don't think of my angel … I made a huge mistake. I know God has forgiven me for my sin, and I know he loves me, but I just feel like I'm not good enough and my life isn't worth living…. Not a month, day, hour, minute or second goes by that I don't think about what I've done. I wish I had someone to talk to before did it. So if your thinking about abortion, DON'T DO IT. YOU WILL REGRET IT & IT WILL HAUNT YOU FOREVER. I have so many dreams about babies, to the point where I won't sleep at night. Just remember, there's a women out there that would love to have a child, but she can’t. So don't make the same, careless mistake I made. God won't give you anything you can't handle. Believe in God. He'll get you thru this. I believe in him, that's why I can live to tell my story.
