Abortion Story: New South Wales

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on December 4, 2013.


I was 15 when I found out I was pregnant. My partner was controlling, and he and his mother made the decision to terminate the baby. I was against this decision, but as I was young, I felt that I couldn't tell anyone or seek help, so I agreed, feeling I had no other option. Thinking back, [the abortionist] never really lied to me, but he never really told me the truth about the process, and I was led to believe the baby would feel no pain. On the day (of the abortion), I was terrified. I found out that day that I was much further along than I thought—12 weeks. Even then, I was pressured to go through with it. I've never felt so helpless. I've regretted that day ever since, and while I stayed with [my partner] for another 3 years, things degraded from there—ending in me leaving him after the birth of our first child. I can never forgive him, but more than that, I can never forgive myself. My son would be starting school next year.
