Abortion Story: Los Angeles, CA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on November 21, 2010.


I am a single mother of two beautiful girls that are three years old. When I found out I was pregnant again, I was excited. Although I knew that I was young and already had children I was excited to bring another life into this world. Telling the father was the hard part. He was not excited at all. In fact, he was at a loss for words. When he was finally able to express his feelings, "get an abortion" was all that I heard. After tons of arguing and disagreeing I ended up going to Planned Parenthood. That was the worst experience of my life. I sat in a cold, crowded room with tons of other women of all different ages–watching 16 and pregnant on MTV as if they were trying to say to you look at these teens, this is why you are here. After I got my ultrasound, I waited in another room with an IV in my arm. An hour later it was my turn and I was called in. They strapped my legs down and I begin to cry. I asked the nurse if the medication was going to put me to sleep and she told me NO! The medication was just going to relax me but I wouldn't be aware of what was going on. Boy was she wrong! I remember everything that took place. I cried and cried and told the nurse and the doctor I didn't want to go through with it, but they just told me I would be okay, relax. I remember the sound of the tools and the pain that they caused me. I remember the jar they threw my baby in and the trash that sat on the side of it. Having an abortion is wrong, there are many different options for parents that are not ready to raise a child. This experience was very eye opening for me, having an abortion is not something that I will ever go through again. Children are innocent and they don't ask to be brought into this world. As adults we must be careful and choose better actions in what we do.
