Abortion Story: London, UK
Submitted to Abort73 by a 15-year-old woman on February 4, 2021.
When I had my abortion I was only 14 years old. I didn’t know how to cope or what to do with myself or my baby. My boyfriend was 16 and told me he would support me no matter what I chose to do. My mum forced me to have an abortion and never told me she would support my decision. I had no choice. I wanted to keep my baby, but I couldn’t because abortion was forced onto me to get rid of it. My boyfriend’s mum told me I should get rid of it because she wasn't ready to be a grandmother just yet.
After the abortion happened, my boyfriend and I were never the same again. We argued every day over petty things. We were always mad at each other, and I always put the blame on myself. We broke up after two years as this affected us too much. Abortions are degrading and heart-breaking, and you will never forgive yourself or be the same again. You will always have a pain in your heart. My boyfriend and I tried to kill ourselves over this situation many times because of guilt. I wish I did what was right. My abortion happed in December 2019 and will never be gone, and I will never be over the pain that I killed my own child like a terrible mother. Please speak up about abortion.
