Abortion Story: Cincinnati, OH

Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on July 15, 2016.


I found out I was pregnant at ten weeks. I went to a women's center to get an ultrasound. I saw the baby move and heard its heartbeat. I was in complete shock. I could see the feet and hands so clearly. It was a tiny human. But I had convinced myself abortion was the best option. I had only known the baby's father for a couple months and we were not in a relationship. He was a lot older than me. I thought it would be bad if my child grew up with parents who had a big age difference. I was only 21, working as a waitress, and living with my mother. I wanted my child to be raised in a stable environment. I grew up without a father. I didn't want my child to have to go through what I did. These all seemed like valid reasons to end the baby's life.

I had the abortion procedure at 12 weeks. I was put to sleep, but I am still traumatized by the experience. Before the procedure I was fine. My mind was set on this decision, and I thought I would be relieved when it was over. When the nurse woke me up and took me to the bathroom, it hit me. When I saw all the blood, I realized what I had done. I let someone murder my own child. I cried hysterically. I missed my baby already.

I regret my decision. It hurts me every day. If you are considering abortion, I really hope you change your mind. There are other options, but trust me, this one will hurt you forever.
