Abortion Story: Lancaster, PA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 18-year-old woman on April 26, 2015.


I had my first pregnancy when I was 17 years old and a senior in high school. When I first saw the positive sign, I didn't know what to do or who to talk to. The father freaked out. I was with him for about a year, and we talked for awhile before that. He was my first. I wasn't expecting to hear the things he said to me, things like, “I hope you and the baby die, etc.” He wasn’t going to help or be a part of the child's life. I knew I couldn't care for a child on my own. It was impossible. A few weeks went by, and I let him talk me into the abortion. Do I regret it? Yes and no. Mentally, I know it was the right thing, so I could go to school and become something in life—and have a family when I’m ready but, my heart can't let it go. I think about the abortion a lot and see lots of happy moms. If I could go back and listen to myself and not him, I would have kept the baby and been the best mom I could be. If you’re getting an abortion, make sure it is what you want and no one else—or you'll be like me, losing it every day and upset. I wish I could go back to that day, but I can’t—and won't ever be able to.
