Abortion Story: London, Ontario, Canada

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on December 31, 2010.


I got pregnant when I was 19. I turn 21 in two months. My boyfriend was someone who didn't care about me. Used me for sex, and pretended he was a good person. At the time, my sister was 6 months pregnant and enjoying her pregnancy. Every time I looked at her, I had to see her joy, and her easily accepted pregnancy. She had been trying for five years and finally got her wish. My boyfriend hounded me to get an abortion. He did not feel anything towards me or his unborn child. It's very easy for men to be heartless because they do not share your feelings, or the soul that is growing inside of you. I decided to get an abortion because he did not want to be with me, and he did not even want to support me, and was only concerned with himself. I did not want to be a mom who couldn't support and give her child everything it deserved.

When I went in to get my sonogram the person who did it did not show me my baby. When I asked to see it, he said I could "next time." This moron clearly knew I was having an abortion. It was a heartless thing to say. Every day I worried if I was making the right decision.

When the day finally came, I was awake for my abortion, and I felt everything, it was very painful, and they had told me it wouldn't be. It only took around ten minutes. I was 11 weeks pregnant.

They then gave me my clothes and my shoes, and escorted me to a room with other people who had just had an abortion. I was wearing a 'sponge' type pad and they gave me two advils and a cookie. I was dizzy and in a lot of pain, and I was bleeding badly. The person who was there to look after us did NOT care that I was bleeding more than I should have been. She showed me out and told me to go home.

I live about a 15 minute walk from the hospital where I got it done. They were not concerned about whether I had a way home or not, even though in all the papers it said you HAD to have someone drive you home, buses weren't an option. Well, little did they know, I walked home, in the pouring rain by myself.

To this day, I hate the boy who talked me into giving up our child. I do believe he is one of the most selfish people on the planet, he did not go with me to my appointments, he did not support me one bit, I did ALL of this alone.

Although I am still pro-choice, I advise everyone to look at adoption before abortion. Abortions are not fun, they are not easy, and the people you deal with do not care about you at all. Not many people know I have had an abortion, because I am ashamed. My baby deserved life, even if I could not give it to him or her, someone else could have.
