Abortion Story: Rhode Island
Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on January 7, 2016.
I recently had an abortion, two weeks ago. At first I wanted it over with; now I'm very upset I made that choice. My boyfriend and I thought abortion was the best choice. But it’s not. I deeply regret this now. It hurts me every day. There hasn't been a day go by that I haven’t balled my eyes out. I wish I had my baby back. I've kept this to myself because I'm ashamed. At work everyone notices I've been "different,” and it's just hurting me to hold this all in. My ex said he'd be there for me, but he isn’t. Now I feel as if I made this decision on my own, and he doesn't even care. I feel alone and hurt. My baby would have been so beautiful, and I killed it with abortion meds. I wish this was a nightmare, and I could just wake up. But I can’t. It's too late. I just wish I had a shoulder to cry on. It will never get better; I'll always have a part of me missing. My heart is completely broken, and I'll never be able to have my angel again. Honestly, to anyone out here trying to get an abortion, please don’t. Think about it really good and realize you will never be able to take it back.
