Abortion Story: Indianapolis, IN
Submitted to Abort73 by a 18-year-old woman on March 14, 2016.
On December 31, I found out that I was pregnant. I got pregnant from the wrong men. It was a terrible mistake, and I just couldn't believe it. I did't know what to do; I felt confused. I just couldn't think. I told my partner at the time, and he immediately said, "You have to make an appointment for an abortion.” I could not believe what he had just said. I didn't want to do it. Time passed, and I started to fall in love with my baby. I talked to him every day at school and felt him/her. The father was pressuring me and said that if I was going to have the baby, he was going to leave me and the baby. I'm a full-time student; I'm not financially stable. But as I said, he was the wrong men and I just couldn't have my baby because of him. I was going to destroy his life, and he would even end up going to jail. I called on a Friday to make the appointment, and they gave it to me on Monday. I did not have any symptoms yet, but I missed my period and went to a free pregnancy center to make sure. It was positive. They said that they could help me get a baby shower and ultrasound, and I was crying—mad at myself and full of emotions. As soon as I got out, I went to the women's medical center to get the abortion procedure done. I was so upset. I didn't want to do it, but I got it done. A day doesn’t pass by without remembering my baby. I hope God and the baby forgive me. I love you baby! I hope you can forgive me. I regret this forever.
