Abortion Story: California
Submitted to Abort73 by a 18-year-old woman on February 28, 2014.
I'm 18; my boyfriend is 16. I got pregnant two months ago and found out at 5 weeks and 3 days—on February 4, 2014. I was so excited but scared. A few friends knew; so did my boyfriend, along with his parents and mine. We were so happy. Eventually, it all came to an end. His parents threatened to press charges against me, and I wasn't in the best living arrangement. I felt forced and bullied. I had the abortion yesterday, and he never showed up. Instead, he blamed everyone else. We aren't the same anymore, and I miss the baby and regret the abortion. Today, I'm planning on breaking up with him. The abortion was the most traumatizing experience of my life, and if I could redo yesterday I would. I would still be pregnant and happy. I lost a part of me, and my spirit is completely broken.
