Abortion Story: Johannesburg

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on February 24, 2024.


I was 19 years old and in love. In my mind, he was my soulmate. I got pregnant and when I told him, he said he didn't remember ejaculating. At that moment I knew that even If I decided not to do the abortion, I'd be a single parent, which I couldn't handle. I went to the hospital and got an appointment for the upcoming week. I went there that week and got the procedure done. Months after doing so, I got depressed and life stopped making sense. I used to—and still do—beat myself up about it. A year later, I'm still trying to heal.
