Abortion Story: Indiana

Submitted to Abort73 by a 18-year-old woman on September 21, 2014


I'm currently 18 years old. A couple years ago, I found out I was pregnant. I was so young and confused. I didn't know what to do. My mom wouldn't leave me alone, my step-dad threatened to leave my mom, and everybody kept telling me to get an abortion. I was forced into it by my mom. She wouldn't let me see the ultrasound pictures or hear the heartbeat. She told me everything was going to be back to normal after it was done. I regret having it. Some nights I cry myself to sleep thinking about it. He/She would be 2-years-old right now. Every time I see a baby or hear about someone having a baby, I think about what could have been. Nothing has been normal since the abortion. I never wanted kids, but since I had that abortion, I want kids more than ever.
