Abortion Story: Fremont, CA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on December 15, 2010.


I was with my high school sweetheart for over a year. Towards the end we fought a lot and I broke it off. 2 months later I found out that I was 3 months pregnant at 17. i called him and he was immature about it. I decided to get n abortion since we were no longer together. The nurses were cold and unsympathetic. Since I couldn't go under general anesthesia I had a conscious sedation. I could feel EVERYTHING. When they wheeled me into the waiting room I broke down crying. I thought I had made the right decision but it felt wrong. i have thought about my baby every day. I actually became a child development major to ensure that I would be the best parent I could be when the time was "right." My ex and I started to date again my junior year of college and the past haunts him as well. Not a day goes by where we don't think about the horrible decision we made in haste. He hurts just as much as I do, it just took more time for him. I hate seeing older women with babies because it hurts me to know that I couldn't have mine because I wasn't "old" enough. I think it would have been alright, which is why it hurts so badly. If you are considering abortion think it through for a couple of weeks. I had scheduled mine a week after I found out I was pregnant. I hadn't absorbed the emotional damage it would cause, and I deeply regret it everyday.
