Abortion Story: London
Submitted to Abort73 by a 18-year-old woman on December 22, 2015.
I have been with my boyfriend just over a year, and I fell pregnant in September. After we found out, we couldn't be happier. Things changed. He liked to do drugs a lot and go out and see his friends. I didn't think he was mature enough or even ready to have a child. So we spoke about aborting. Literally hearing the word makes me feel guilty. I never wanted to get rid of my child, but I felt I had no other choice. He was willing to stick around, but he was just not ready. The day I went to the clinic, he wouldn't even come with me. I went with my mum as I had her full support. The evening I came home, he constantly argued with me and gave me no support. I regret my actions and would change them if I could. I will honestly never forgive myself, and I don't think he will ever forgive me either. I now have nobody to support me, and I sit here alone crying at night because I made the biggest mistake of my life. This will live with me forever.
