Abortion Story: New Jersey
Submitted to Abort73 by a 24-year-old woman on February 24, 2016.
Here is my story. My boyfriend was so happy in the beginning, but I was a bit confused. I just couldn’t believe I was pregnant, but as time went by got used to it. I was beginning to have morning sickness and was starting to be happy about having a baby. I kept it secret from my family, but my family was starting to catch on that I was pregnant. I was throwing up all the time, losing weight, and my body was so weak, but I kept going for a while—until one day my boyfriend had a change of heart on me and told me, “Let’s get an abortion.” I was so excited about this baby because the due date was the same date as my birthday. My boyfriend told me he didn’t think we were ready and that we should get an abortion. I didn’t want to, so I kept wasting a time until I finally gave in. He kept pressuring me about it, and it was so weird to me that he changed his mind. I made the appointment, got to the clinic, and decided I couldn’t do it until I could get counseling, because I wasn’t sure what I wanted. We made an appointment for another location, and I finally gave in. It was the worst day of my life. I went home and kept holding my stomach, trying to sing like I used to sing to my baby. I pray to god that he forgave me. I just wanted to take everything back, but it was too late. To this day, that baby has not been forgotten. I fell in love with that baby. Moral of my story to any women/girl: no matter what age you are, don’t ever make someone pressure you into doing something you don’t wanna do because it will be the biggest mistake ever. I pray and pray every day. I talk to god and I’ve asked for forgiveness. God has blessed me with a new bundle. I’m pregnant. Ladies, no matter what, don’t ever make someone make a decision for you. Don’t give up hope; have faith. I thought the same thing, that I couldn’t take care of a child, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices. This time I will make the biggest sacrifices for my child, no matter what happens.
