My heart is broken and will always be. It’s something I have to cope with for the rest of my life...

Abortion Story: California

Submitted to Abort73 by a 15-year-old woman on January 20, 2016.


Being so young, I gave myself no other option than to have an abortion. I can’t raise a baby at my age, and I certainly can’t stop my life and start a new one just like that when I'm a sophomore in high school. It was a mistake. My partner and I should have been more careful. I truly believe it was the right decision for me, but that doesn't mean it wasn't hard. I was 11 weeks and had a surgical abortion. Prior to this surgery I was fine but once it happened, coming in and out of consciousness from the local anesthesia, I was sobbing. Knowing what I was doing was so heart breaking. Once the surgery was over and I was lying on the bed still sobbing, all I wanted to do was go home. I rolled off the bed trying to get up, not being able to, crying and bleeding on the floor. I couldn't handle it. The nurses picked me up and put me back on the bed, trying to make me feel better. I didn't. My heart is broken and will always be. It’s something I have to cope with for the rest of my life. I took any chance of the child having a life. I feel awful…
