Abortion Story: Carolina, Puerto Rico

Submitted to Abort73 by a 32-year-old woman on June 8, 2018.


I really regret my abortion. I think it was a selfish thing to do, but given my circumstances, I thought I didn't have a better option back then. I don't know how much more I'll be able to stand such a burden. I had an abortion 12 years ago; I was 20 years old. I got pregnant from a guy that loved me so much. I still cry when I remember, but he died in a car accident when the baby was 6 weeks of gestation. Soon afterwards, I had my abortion. I had it because I had no economic support after his death. I lived with my grandmom, and she wouldn't be able to raise my kid because she was already too old. She died four months after my abortion, and I only knew a little about my parents. They left the island and moved to New York when I was 5-years-old. I have siblings, but just like me, they had their matters to attend, and I didn't want to bother them. I don't remember much about the day of my abortion, but I remember it was a very painful experience, and a very lasting and haunting one.
