Abortion Story: Michigan
Submitted to Abort73 by a 16-year-old woman on May 14, 2019.
At the time I was 14. I wanted to grow up. I’d been dating the guy I was seeing for a couple of months, We found out I was pregnant, and he supported me. He told me it was my choice. I wanted to keep the baby even though I was young. I couldn’t fathom an abortion. I went to the doctors and told them I was gonna keep it. The baby didn’t even show up because it was too early. During those few weeks, my parents pressured me into the abortion. I never wanted to do it. They pressured me hard. So I finally had one. I was 8 weeks at the time. The lady asked if I wanted a picture. Of course I said yes. I took the abortion pill and went home. My boyfriend came over and took care of me. I didn’t want to, and I still struggle with issues. I’m still with my boyfriend. I’m now 16. I am in so much pain because of that, and I can never forgive myself. Everywhere I go I see babies. It scares me, and it upsets me really bad.
