Birth Story: Texas

Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on November 26, 2015.


In 2012, I was 18 and a recent high school graduate. My plan was to go to college. Little did I know that I would become pregnant that summer. I was excited because the person I thought was the love of my life would also be happy. I told him the news, and he was excited and supportive—at first. Then one day, everything changed. He started to act differently, and by this time we were living together. I left him because he became such a total jerk and moved to a city three hours away. A week passed, and I didn’t hear from him. I was now nine weeks along and decided to go to a clinic to "terminate my pregnancy." I walked in and got checked out to see how far along I was. Then they told me to come back two weeks later, which I never did. During my first and only visit, I realized so much. I started crying as soon as I sat down after checking in at the front desk. As I sat there, I looked at magazines that explained (prenatal development) and had images of the fetus during each month. That is when I started to cry like there was no tomorrow. I asked myself, “what the hell am I doing?” I never went back and decided to keep my baby, which was a healthy little girl. I don’t regret having her, and I am so thankful and blessed that God didn’t allow me to do such a cowardly thing. It was just so painful to see and think about what would actually happen during an abortion, so I changed my mind. Fast forward to now, 2015. I am a proud mother of two children. Even though my first relationship didn’t work out, I found a person who accepted me while I was 6-months pregnant with my baby girl. Long story short, my husband loves my little girl like his own and blessed me with a new little boy as well. God knows what he is doing, and I couldn’t imagine my life without my little girl—who is now 2-years-old, going on three. Reading the stories of women who have had abortions makes me realize how fortunate I really am to have my little girl, who is a big sister to her brother. Please don’t abort!
