Abortion Story: Linden, Guyana

Submitted to Abort73 by a 43-year-old woman on August 20, 2018.


Before my abortion, I never expected to deeply regret something I was so sure about, but I do. And it really hurts to see how ignorant, foolish, and naive I was.

I was 23 when I went through an abortion on November 9, 1998. I got pregnant from a man I actually loved. I know now that he loved me then, as he wanted me to keep the baby—not because of him or the baby, but because of me. Though I didn't understand that back then, I really think he was right. But since I used to be stubborn, I ignored him and his attempts to change my mind. Given the facts, sometimes I wonder how miserable I was to ignore him and not let our child live by making the hideous decision to abort.

It didn't take too much after the abortion for him to leave me, and I understand why did he left me. He felt ignored and betrayed, and he wasn't able to trust me anymore. Even though I didn’t know it at the time, I did it out of the fear of raising a child on my own, since I couldn't even keep myself.
