Abortion Story: United States
Submitted to Abort73 by a 29-year-old woman on February 2, 2011.
When I was sixteen years old I had my first abortion. I was told that it was tissue and the baby had not yet formed. They sat me down in an office with a counselor and she gave me her word that babies do not form until after the three month trimester, she even showed me brochures to back up her statements. They told me it would be, "quick, over in a minute". I would feel nothing and I would be able to move on with my life... this was the advice given to me and so I did... After all, I was not killing a child yet, I was "removing tissue." My heart told me otherwise but I ignored it. My first time seeing what a baby looks like at twelve weeks was in late 2010 at a museum. I tried not to give it much thought [but] the baby that I saw in the tube at the museum did not resemble a tissue. It had everything I have but in smaller portions... Abortionists are not telling people the truth. I pray that young girls and woman all across the world will see the truth of what abortion is. It is murder.
