Abortion was never an option... That baby is 19-years-old today with an ACT score of 30 and a full ride to college...

Birth Story: Kansas

Submitted to Abort73 by a 41-year-old woman on October 2, 2016.


I had a strange upbringing—a mix of feminism and biker gang. My mother was very emotionally unstable and both my parents were atheists. My mother was verbally abusive, so I had problems with drinking and drugs. My father adopted me, but treated me like I was his own for the most part. I got pregnant when I was 20. I knew immediately. I put a cigarette up to my lips and nearly vomited. I just knew. I was scared, excited, and freaking out. Lucky for me, my then-boyfriend now husband of 19 years had a mom who had an abortion pushed on her at 15, followed by a lifetime of regret. Abortion was never an option. I fell in love with our baby immediately. That baby is 19-years-old today with an ACT score of 30 and a full ride to college. I have three other kids by the same man and I wont tell you it is easy, but God makes a way. I used cloth diapers, breast fed, found used baby furniture at churches—and my spouse is a psychopath with narcissistic personality issues. I became a Christian at 21, and I hung in there. I am so, so grateful for women who stand up and warn young mothers of the dangers of abortion—the post abortion syndrome, the regret, the hurt that creates a downward spiral for your entire life. I now go out of my way for young mothers and help them through our church.
