Abortion Story: Kenya
Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on May 19, 2015.
I found out I was pregnant on February 4, 2014. I was so scared, and I immediately knew I wanted to have an abortion. I got pregnant with a boy who lived in next door. He was a very very close neighbor and everybody in my family treated him as a brother. When I found out I was pregnant, I felt it was wrong. I was scared how every body else would treat my baby. I don’t have a job. Would my parents accept the baby? I decided to have an abortion which was done on the 7th of February—a Friday at 5pm. I don’t want to remember how I felt before and after the abortion. I have cried every day. I have lost hope with my life. I am not the jovial, happy person I used to be. I hate even having a good time because I always feel I don’t deserve it. I pray to God every day to curse me. Every day I just wish to die. If you are out there and want to do an abortion, please don’t do it! It’s the worst permanent decision a person can ever make.
