Abortion Story: Clovis, CA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 28-year-old woman on May 21, 2019.
I was 19 years old when my boyfriend (now husband) and I found out I was pregnant. I had a job and was in college. He was striving to become a firefighter. We didn’t know who to go to, so we went to his parents. They immediately told us to get an abortion. During the next week we went back-and-forth about what to do. We finally decided we would keep the baby. We were so happy and overjoyed. We felt like everything was going to be ok. We went to his parents that night and said we were going to keep the baby. His dad blew up and scolded my husband. The next day we went to the abortion clinic and went through with it. The moment I woke up in that disgusting bed and room, I felt instant regret, pain, sadness, loss and confusion. I wasn’t warned that now at 28 years old I would feel that loss, guilt and pain. I feel it even more when I look into my seven-year-old’s eyes and my two-year-old’s eyes. I wonder if I will ever tell them they were supposed to have an older sibling. We let someone take that away from us, and I will never forget it. I have forgiven my in-laws, and my husband and I are happily married now. God helped us survive this horrible traumatic time in our lives. If you’re reading this and looking for an answer, don’t do it. Kids are a blessing from above. Take it from me, I was young and didn’t realize how much I would regret it later.
