Abortion Story: Atlanta, GA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on July 7, 2010.
When I was 19 I was dating someone who I thought I was very much in love with. We were only together for a few months when I got pregnant. Things soon changed and I realized that he was not the person I thought he was and that I wanted better for my life and the child's life so I decided to terminate the pregnancy. It never really hits you with what you are about to do until you are laying on table waiting for the procedure to take place. I was scared, alone and confused if this was the right decision. Well after it was done I cried for two days and was still miserable for a long time. I became depressed, guilty and couldn't look at myself in the mirror. I have often thought about where I would be now and how old my baby would be.
