Abortion Story: Kansas
Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on August 11, 2015.
I had an abortion on March 4,2015. It was the worst day of my life. My boyfriend at the time wanted me to get the abortion the minute I came out of the clinic and found I was 4-weeks pregnant. By the time I had the abortion, I was 7-weeks. I didn't want to do the abortion and neither did my mother. But I respected his opinion. He wasn't ready and is already a father of two kids. So I decided to go on with the abortion. I cried every day as I watched videos of people regretting their abortions. I love kids, so I knew this was going to tear me apart. As I waited, I cried and cried. He didn't seem to care; it's like he wanted to just get it over with. I was awake the whole time. When it was done, I felt a sudden emptiness and knew I had made the worst mistake of life. It's with me every day, and all I can do is wonder. I wonder how my baby would've looked, I wonder what would've been my baby’s favorite color, and I wonder if would have had a baby boy or a baby girl. The abortion has changed my life completely. I'd do anything and give anything just to have my baby back inside of me—growing day by day.
