Abortion Story: Michigan

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on November 13, 2010.


Its been almost 4 years since I had my abortion. I was 16 at the time... I had names picked out and everything, but my family told me that I knew deep down that I would not be with this guy forever. I got it done when I was 12 weeks. A few days before I went to go and get it done they said I was too far along, but they gave me the ultrasound picture of my baby. I went to a different place and got the abortion behind my ex boyfriends back. It was so painful and I saw everything in that jar. I never got over it, my ex and I separated 6 months later, and not even a year afterward he had a baby with someone else. I see pictures of his new baby and wonder if my baby would have looked like him.... I am now scared to hold babies or be around them from my guilt. I ended up throwing away the ultrasound because I was so ashamed.
