I could’ve stopped it, and I didn’t. And I can’t ever go back. I can’t change it. I can’t fix it...

Abortion Story: Massachusetts

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on February 2, 2018


I was 16 when I found out I was pregnant. I was 16 when I told my mother I was pregnant. I was 16 when I was forced into an abortion I didn’t want to have. The logic? “Having a baby will ruin your life.” No. You wanna know what ruined my life? Watching ALL MY F—ING FRIENDS have kids. Watching their parents support them. Walking into Walmart looking at baby shoes. Seeing ultrasounds on my timeline 24/7, while I have to keep mine stashed away. Wondering if my kid would’ve been a boy or a girl. Wondering what their first word would’ve been. Knowing they would start preschool this year. Watching everyone else have a g—d— happy family that I didn’t get to have. I could’ve prevented it. I could’ve stopped it, and I didn’t. And I can’t ever go back. I can’t change it. I can’t fix it. And I can’t even f—ing talk about it to anyone without being called a f—ing murderer. And that’s the worst of all.
