Abortion Story

Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on July 9, 2006.


I had an abortion about three months ago. Although I am a married woman, I did not feel ready to start a family. My husband and I felt emotionally and financially unprepared to have a child. This was our justification for the murder of what should have been our first born. Obtaining the means for the abortion was amazingly easy. I went to the clinic, was given ru-486 (the abortion pill) and killed my child in the privacy of my own home. It was the biggest mistake of my life. After wards I felt so empty and sad. I thought I would feel relieved, instead I am plagued daily by feelings of guilt and thoughts of what might have been. Every time I see a baby I wonder what mine would have looked like, and what kind of beautiful child my husband and I could have raised together.
