Abortion Story: New Mexico

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on October 1, 2014.


On June 25, 2014, I found out I was pregnant by my boyfriend of 4 years. Although we are head-over-heels in love, I was so frightened to tell my dad—since I was very young and he always told me he would kill the man I was with if I ever got pregnant at a young age. Everything happened so quickly when I found out. I didn't even think to sit down and remind myself how much my dad loves and respects my boyfriend. He would never actually hurt me or him. Besides that, I’m in college and working a part time job. So is my boyfriend minus the school part. All I could think about is how I could never provide for our baby the way I always dreamed. On June 27, I went in and had the 10-minute procedure that I will forever regret. How could I destroy the life of our baby? Every day I walk around with a broken heart, and so does my boyfriend. To honor the memory of my child, I'm going to finish school and raise that diploma to him/her. I will fight to the end of my days to end abortion because a “woman’s right” isn’t a right at all. It’s a hell that you live in every day. I miss my baby every day and wish more than anything I could rewind time and take back my selfish mistake. I urge any of you young girls who are afraid to tell your parents, DON'T BE! I ended up telling my dad and he was only mad at what I did and said what a huge mistake I made. Girls, have your babies. Watch them grow up. Love them, hug them, because that's one thing I’ll never have the chance to do.
