Abortion Story: Pietermaritzburg, South Africa

Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on May 16, 2015.


It was two years ago—25 March 2013—when I decided to have an abortion. I was 9 weeks pregnant. I was more miserable than I have ever been. I was terrified—scared because I was not ready to be a mom. I was only 19. It was my life-long dream to be a mother, and I have been against abortion my whole life. But I did not know what else to do. People begged me not to do it. I had an abortion to escape harsh reality. I was relieved at the time, but now I regret my decision. Every time I see a child, I start to think how my baby would look. I despise myself for taking the life of an innocent child. Who was I to take my child's life? I wish I would have listened when someone told me not to do it.
