Abortion Story: Wisconsin

Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on July 27, 2016.

It's been one month since I had my abortion. And here I am at 2 AM, looking for some way to relieve my feelings of grief and regret. I've never been so disappointed and ashamed of myself. To think that I should have been a mother. My boyfriend should have been a father. But we're not. And we won't be. Because of fear and selfishness, on both our parts. All I see when I look around is babies, toddlers, and children. And all I can think about is my regret. I see girls from high school with their children they had while still in school. They did it; they managed somehow; they found a way. And yet, I didn't think I could do it at 22. I robbed myself of what would have been the greatest gift of my life, and I continue to pay the price every day.
