I have been heartbroken every day for 18 years because I destroyed a life that was NOT mine to take...

Abortion Story: Indiana

Submitted to Abort73 by a 40-year-old woman on October 27, 2015.


Eighteen years ago, almost to the day, I decided to terminate my pregnancy. I was around eight or nine weeks gestation when I went to the clinic. I specifically told them that if the baby had a heartbeat I did not want to abort the baby. During the ultrasound, I asked if the baby had a heartbeat. Back then, this was less generally known. However, I believe via ultrasound the lady doing it knew the baby had a heartbeat. They lied to me.

I was 22-years-old and had no reason to abort, other than the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy not being something I was proud of. To this day, only a few people know about the horrible and selfish act that I did to this innocent life. I have lived with this secret. The pain and the regret still brings me to tears today. The tears are not for me, they are for the life once in my womb that I chose to destroy for a couple hundred dollars and convenience.

This child would be 17 years old right now—his or her entire life ahead of them. This coming summer, I would have celebrated my child's 18th Birthday. We would be going into this child's senior year of high school, then college—a future. I cannot undo what I have done. I have been heartbroken every day for 18 years because I destroyed a life that was NOT mine to take.

To all the women thinking about abortion, please reconsider. This will most likely haunt you later. We truly have no right to take a life that is not ours. There are better options.
