After the abortion I have only felt alone, betrayed, empty and depressed. I haven't found a way to heal my wounds...

Abortion Story: Paysandú, Uruguay

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on June 8, 2018.


Last year, I got pregnant from someone I loved a lot. And I thought he loved me back, until he pushed me to abort. My baby was 10 weeks and two days old when it died, or better said, I killed it. I thought that heeding my boyfriend would save our relation, but I forgot to consider that he didn't love me as much as I had thought, and dumped me after the abortion. My parents didn't care about me. They agreed with him on aborting their grandchild. I felt betrayed. After the abortion I have only felt alone, betrayed, empty and depressed. I haven't found a way to heal my wounds. I doubt I'll feel at peace with myself or find help anytime soon. I have heard abortion empowers women, but I think that's a lie to glamorize an abhorrent act. Personally I've felt exactly the opposite: demeaned and objectified because of the way my parents and my ex treated me when they found out about my pregnancy, and the way they treated me after my abortion.
