Abortion Story: Los Angeles, California

Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on May 11, 2015.


It was one year ago today, Mother's Day, that I got pregnant. My due date was Valentine's Day. I stayed pregnant for three months—more miserable than I had ever been. Terrified, scared, and trapped because I did not want a baby. I was 20 and hooked on heroin. It was my life-long dream to be a mother, and I have been against abortion my whole life. But I didn't know what else to do. People begged me not to do it. I had the abortion to escape a harsh reality. It relieved me temporarily, but I will regret my decision eternally. I am constantly reminded. I am constantly grieving. I will forever dream of my child that I gave up. If I can help just one person— no matter how scary it seems, having your baby is the only option that you will not regret. I wish I would have listened when someone told me that. You are free to choose, but you are not free of the consequences.
