Abortion Story: UK
Submitted to Abort73 by a 15-year-old woman on December 24, 2015.
On December the 7th, 2015, I had a surgical abortion. I was 9 weeks pregnant. Waking up in the recovery room from the anesthetic was when it truly sunk in. I don't want to believe it. I keep telling myself I'm just stuck in a nightmare that I can't get out of, but it’s been almost three weeks and the guilt consumes me. A burden that will probably hang over me for the rest of my life. I want to be myself again, I want the pain to be erased. I am angry and sad. Everyone was quick to scream abortion at me, but no one ever asked me what I wanted.
