I'm not able to sleep or eat because I miss my child. I stay up at night and cry for hours...

Abortion Story: Barbados

Submitted to Abort73 by a 17-year-old woman on September 19, 2016


I was 16, turning 17, when I found out I was pregnant. I was filled with many emotions. At points, I didn't want a child because I was in school—but still I wanted my child. I had figured out a way to have my child and still continue with school. When I told my mother, she couldn't believe me. She thought it was a joke. When I took the test to prove to her I was actually pregnant she looked at me and said, “You know you can't keep it.” I was devastated and heartbroken. On March 8th I had my abortion. When I came home I cried. I missed school for days because I couldn't get out of my bed. Now that it is approaching the time when my baby would have been born, I'm remembering all the aching pains I had after the abortion. I'm not able to sleep or eat because I miss my child. I stay up at night and cry for hours.
