Abortion Story: Antioch, TN
Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on May 9, 2016.
I got pregnant at a very young age. I wasn't even 18 yet. When I found out I was pregnant, I was so happy. I told my boyfriend, who was my same age, but all he did was hide from me. My family figured out I was pregnant because of all the vomiting I was going through. My whole family kept screaming at me, from one ear to the other, that I couldn't have the baby. I couldn't understand; I loved my boyfriend. I told my boyfriend to let his family know. Maybe they would support us, but no, he didn't tell them anything. He kept hiding the secret, which made my family insist even more to not have a child from him. Eventually, my family and I went to his house to notify his family about my pregnancy. They were not aware of anything. My boyfriend was such a coward. It wasn’t until then that he begged me to not have an abortion. What about all those days of pain when I had no support? I was forced by my family to move out of state for my abortion. There is not one day that I don't think about my unborn child. I regret it. All I’ve wanted in the years since is to have a baby, to try to heal the pain. On the day of my abortion, I was half asleep. I remember begging them to stop, to stop and to let my baby LIVE, but it was too late. PLEASE DO NOT HAVE AN ABORTION!
