Abortion Story: South Dakota

Submitted to Abort73 by a 24-year-old woman on December 20, 2017.


I had an abortion when I was 19. My boyfriend at the time was very adamant that I “take care of it.” I never wanted the abortion but then I decided I didn’t want to raise my baby with a dad who didn’t want it. So I did it. I regretted it during the procedure but it was too late to turn back. I ended up having two miscarriages after that. I can’t help but think it was punishment for killing my first baby. But then I got married and we got pregnant. I prepared myself to lose this baby too because I felt I didn’t deserve a baby after what I had done. However I ended up having a beautiful baby girl. I struggled for a long time to be happy because I still didn’t think I deserved a baby. I’ve finally learned to forgive myself as well as my ex-boyfriend. Now my daughter is the light of our lives. She’s our little flower of hope, that something beautiful can come from ashes.
