I still weep over my decision to kill my own child—a choice I cannot take back...

Abortion Story: Alaska

Submitted to Abort73 by a 41-year-old woman on April 8, 2011.


I've recently learned that 64% of American women who have had abortions felt pressured by others. I am one of those women. When I became pregnant at age 17, I was pressured by my father to get an abortion. Abortion was the only "choice" presented. I was told MY life would be destroyed if I didn't get one. Nobody discussed the destruction of the other life that would be affected. I still weep over my decision to kill my own child—a choice I cannot take back. Whether the motive be for convenience, profit, or misguided advice, we must protect vulnerable women from coercion and pressure to get an abortion. The reality of abortion and alternatives must be made available to help others make an informed decision that will not haunt them for the rest of their lives.
