Abortion Story: Birmingham, AL

Submitted to Abort73 by a 40-year-old woman on May 23, 2016.


I had an abortion when I was about 25. I remember when I found out I was pregnant; it was a world of mixed emotions. I wasn't sure what to do since the guy that I had been dating was abusive. He actually tried to kill me by choking me. I had thought about keeping the baby and going through with the pregnancy, but after thinking more and more into this, I called and made the appointment to have an abortion. I had a good friend of mine drive me to Tuscaloosa to go to this clinic. Everything was like a blur once I arrived. I sat there in disbelief that I was actually about to do something I had been so against all my life. As I was called up to the desk, I remember getting to the desk and falling on the floor crying, telling them I couldn’t do this. The lady at the desk quickly ran to the back to get someone to talk to me. A lady quickly come to help me off the floor, and she took me back to her office and proceeded to tell me that I wasn't making a mistake. She told me that I thought was a baby was only a mass of cells. She assured me that I would leave there that day with no regrets. She told me how, if I was to go through with the pregnancy, I would regret it. I sat there and let this lady brainwash me into believing that I was making the right choice by going through with having the abortion. After she convinced me that I was making the right choice, she told me she would be right back to get me. She had to go make sure a room was ready. She wasn’t even gone five minutes before she came to get me, took me to a room, and gave me something to calm my nerves. It knocked me out, but I could still hear the sounds of the vacuum. I insisted that my friend go in the room with me and he said that I cried the entire time the abortion was happening. I remember waking up after I left and crying and screaming for my friend to turn around and take me back to get my baby. I thought I had been in a nightmare. I thought it was all a dream, and I was reminded that I really did go through with it. I couldn’t stop crying and insisting for my friend to turn the car around and go back to get my baby. The next day I woke up, and it was like I had relived the nightmare all over again. I felt that I couldn’t go on anymore. I called my mother and told her that if I didn’t get some help in the next ten minutes, nobody would ever have to worry about me again. She came and got me and took me to Sav-A-Life where I was able to talk to a lady that helped me so much. I beg you to please stop and think about having an abortion. The lies they tell you are not true, and it’s really a horrible nightmare.
