Abortion Story: Dallas, TX

Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on July 24, 2015.


April, 21, 2015 was the day I got my abortion. I come from a strict religious family and knew I was going to have a lot of issues talking about this situation. The first thought was that I didn't want to disappoint my mother. The next issue was that the guy I had been dating turned his back on me completely. I told him I was pregnant and needed him to be there for me. Instead, he decided to spend time with his friends and put me aside. I laid there in my room for two weeks straight, thinking about my decision. It was really hard making that decision as I had no support from anybody. I couldn't tell my family, and the father ignored me or gave me excuses. Having a baby is a lot of responsibility, especially if your partner isn't there. It’s also really expensive. That Sunday before my appointment, I was scared. I couldn't sleep. Therefore, I made the decision to have an abortion. The day I had my appointment, a lot of things happened, as if God didn't want me to take this step. The procedure was quick, but I was blank in mind. I didn't know what to think; I was in my own world. I wish to this day that I wouldn't have taken this step and instead kept my baby. I look at women with babies, and other women's testimonials, and it tears me apart. I wish I didn't take this step. I would have been happy not going against my beliefs.
