Abortion Story: Texas
Submitted to Abort73 by a 29-year-old woman on October 9, 2016.
While separated from my significant other, I was involved with another man. My significant other was the father of my first child, and we’d been together for 12 years. We talked about reconciling and getting married, but a few days later I found out I was pregnant by the other man. I was heartbroken. I didn't want to bring a child into this situation. I never believed in abortion, and it hurt me so deeply to have to get one. I had an abortion a few days after my birthday. I’m so hurt. And I wrote a letter to my unborn child:
Dear little one. I'm sorry that you weren't able to see a sunny day, sorry that that day was filled with so much pain. With each day that passes, I regret the decision I made. I'm sorry that you aren't going to be here, even though the thought of you brought so much fear. My thoughts about life after you are all so unclear. If I could take it back, I would my darling little dear. I want to tell you that I love you, and in my dreams I kiss and I hug you. Until we meet each other again, you're embedded in my memory. That will never end.
