Abortion Story: Mira Loma, CA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 33-year-old woman on December 31, 2013.
A few years back, when I was 21, I got pregnant. I was so happy and so was my husband, but then three weeks later, my husband started saying it was my fault that I was pregnant and told me to abort. So did my mother and my dad. My friends said to keep the baby, but I didn't want to ruin my relationship. I gave it a lot of thought, and I cried. I didn't know what to do, but then I called the abortion clinic and made an appointment for Monday. The day after the abortion, I thought about what I did and started crying—regretting what I had done. I kept thinking that my baby is not in my tummy anymore—that it is dead. After that, I got divorced. One month later, I met my wonderful husband who I had a little girl with and a little boy. Every time I look at them, I see my little girl who I never got to meet. After the abortion, I never saw my mom and dad ever again. I love my friends, and I regret that I didn't listen to them. I love my husband and my kids, but I still feel a hole in my heart.
