Abortion Story: Gas City, IN

Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on December 4, 2011.


I am 22 years old – a mother of a 5-year-old and a 1-year-old. Last Sunday (11/27/11), I found out that I was pregnant. I made the biggest mistake of my life (on 12/1/11). I had an abortion. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to take care of my baby like I want to. I feel horrible now. It's only been 3 days, but I can't get the fact that I killed my baby out of my head. I was awake for the whole thing. I did not receive a conscious sedation. I knew everything. It was horrible. I can't sleep anymore; I keep having nightmares and I barely have an appetite at all. All I feel is regret, shame, and hatred for myself. I can't believe I did this. I wish it were just a nightmare and I'd wake up soon. I made my decision way too fast. I should have taken time to think about it instead of just deciding right away. I do not recommend abortion to anyone. It has definitely left its scars on my emotions. This is something that I will NEVER forgive myself for doing. I feel like a monster.
