Abortion Story: Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa

Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on April 10, 2015.


I'm a 21 year-old-mother of a 2 year-old-girl. I had an abortion four years ago. When I found out I was pregnant, I was so scared. I was still in high school. and I thought it would be better to get an abortion. I wish I never did. I remember it like yesterday. I was about 7 weeks pregnant and went to the clinic to get the abortion pill. I still remember they did the sonar, and I looked away. If I had just looked at the sonar, I would have had a 4 year-old now as well. I think about my child all the time. Every time I look at my daughter, I see her brother or sister and feel so bad. Who was I to take my child's life? Still to this day, I have never forgiven myself, and I don't think I ever will. I'm not telling my story to get sympathy; I want women to really think about it before going through with it. At the moment, it might seem like the right thing to do, but you will regret it.
