Abortion Story: Australia
Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on April 1, 2011.
I will never be OK. I will never get over this. I will never be truly happy. Because I was scared and had an abortion. My baby was sick. I have a thyroid problem and his brain was not developed properly. I was 21, living with my boyfriend and now husband. I know what you are thinking–you were sick–what do you have to feel guilty about? The thing is I know with all my heart that even if he was healthy, I would have given him up so that my partner and I would have a good future. Ironic isn't it? Now my future seems worse without him.
