Abortion Story: Canada
Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on June 9, 2015.
I had my abortion on June 4th, 2015. I was 14-weeks along, and I was so unsure about my decision for the entire three months I was pregnant. I felt so much pressure from my family members and the father, and I unfortunately gave in. I made the decision to have an abortion based on the fact that the father meant the world to me, and I knew I would lose him if I chose to keep the baby. I have cried each day since my abortion, and I wish I could go back to that day and tell them that I didn't want to do it. Before the procedure, I saw an ultrasound of my baby. My little girl or boy was on the screen, and I could see their little head and body. That is an image I will never forget. I will live with regret every single day, and I would give anything to have my baby back. I wish I had listened to my heart and chosen to continue my pregnancy. I wish I was able to see my child grow, and hold my child, and see their little face. I have never experienced heartache like this before, and I know I will never forget. If anyone reading this feels similar to the way I did, or is in a similar situation, I really hope that you follow your heart and make the right decision for you. The most painful thing is seeing all of the people who pressured you being completely unaffected, while you are dying inside. Men will leave and treat you badly, and I truly regret allowing a man to convince me to kill my baby girl or boy, because no other person is worth losing my child over.
