Abortion Story: Texas
Submitted to Abort73 by a 36-year-old woman on December 2, 2017.
If you are even considering abortion, you have come to the right place. DO NOT DO IT!!!!! I am writing again to hopefully save you from a life of pain, worry, self-hatred, and mental distress. Have a heart so your baby can too. I had two abortions—18 and 20 years ago. I now have endometriosis and no shot at having children. I was also diagnosed bipolar and depressive and tried suicide—twice. This is not my dream life. I would love to have a child, no matter what problems they may or may not have. I became a heavy drinker to drown the pain, and I just kept reliving it every day. I met a wonderful man whom I married 13 years ago, but he will never know what it’s like every day. I pray for a time when I can see them someday, even if only in my dreams. I would love a child, but due to my bipolar condition, I cannot even adopt. PLEASE. THINK TWICE. A baby is always a blessing, not a burden.
