I regret [my abortion] every day. I wish I could go back and do the right thing...

Abortion Story: California

Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on March 3, 2016.


I was barely turning 23; I didn't know 2015 was going to be one of the worst years. I wound up getting pregnant because my birth control failed. The guy didn't support me like I expected. He told me that I got pregnant on purpose. I honestly didn't know what to do since I have nothing for myself. My family was going through it. I made the choice to have an abortion because I felt pressured by the guy I was with. He made me feel [worthless]. I regret it every day. I wish I could go back and do the right thing. I'm never going to have my child with me because I decided to end my pregnancy. It's been really hard for me; I'm trying to get through it. I had to ask for help because I need it to speak to someone, so I'm going to a therapist. I'm trying I forgive myself, and I pray to God to forgive me. Think about it before you have an abortion. It might affect you more then you think.
