TEEN ABORTION SORROW

 Nikki

I had an abortion last year, and I still think that I should have kept it. I was only 16, and my mom and dad said I was too young to have a baby. My boyfriend and I are still trying to get over it, BUT DEEP DOWN I WILL NEVER BE OVER IT. To all the girls my age or a little older, think about what you are about to do. Do not let anyone tell you that you are too young to have a baby. If you think that you can take care of it, KEEP IT, because I wish I had kept mine.

TEEN ABORTION REGRETS

I was 15 years old when I got pregnant. The boy that I was pregnant by said it was not his baby, but I know it was his baby because he was the only boy I slept with in five months. I was only two months pregnant, so I was sure it was his baby. My momma kind of started to notice my stomach was getting big and that I was throwing up a lot, and she then told me to get an abortion…no questions asked. It was like what I had to say did not matter because I had no say in the matter.

I really regret having an abortion because I wanted my baby. It would have been hard because I am so young, but I would do anything I could to take care of my baby. It hurts me that I killed my first child. I love kids and it will never happen again. I hate to see baby things and pregnant people because it brings back memories of April 14, 2007; and I will never forget it.

To my baby: I love you and I am very sorry you did not get to live your life because your momma did a terrible thing.

TEEN ABORTION RELIEF, THEN REGRET

Brianne 

When I was 16 I had an abortion. It has been only five months since then. I was messing around with someone much older than me, always thinking that it was not going to happen to me. However, it did; and it felt like a ton of bricks hitting you in the face. To look down at your pregnancy test saying positive, saying you have a baby on the way. I looked for the easy way…abortion. It was the only way to keep it from my parents and not let my friends know about it. So the guy and I went for the abortion. At first I was happy. I no longer had worries or responsibilities, but that changed.

Now I look around my school, and I see girls younger than me carrying a child. Why couldn’t I do it? Their life is no different than mine. I could have raised a child. To think that I could have been a mom…have a little girl in my arms…to know that I brought her into this world. But, no, I did the opposite…I took her out because I chose the easy way out. Think before you do it. It is a life full of regrets.

ABORTION ARRANGED BY TEEN’S MOM

Ariel

My name is Ariel.  I was just 15 years old when I found out that I was pregnant. The guy I was pregnant by was supportive and ready for any decision that I wanted to make. My mom and my family were against it and didn’t want me to be pregnant. I wanted to keep the baby, but my mom didn’t. So one day my mom took me to the clinic and told them that I wanted to get an abortion, but I didn’t want one. On July 13 I got the abortion, and I regret every minute of it. Every time I see pregnant people I get upset because I could have my baby in my arms right now. I want to apologize to my baby for killing it. I miss you and I love you very much.

TEEN REFUSES TO BE PUSHED INTO ABORTION

 Stephanie

My name is Stephanie.  I am now 17 years old. I got pregnant at the age of 15. My Mom tried to push me into getting an abortion. I thought about it, but I did a lot of research on the Internet. I found this website. It changed my mind and gave me the strength to stand up to my mother. If I had gotten an abortion I would have to live with that pain for the rest of my life.

Now my son is seven months old today! He has changed my life tremendously! I am so glad that I chose not to get an abortion. I live a guilt free life. I don’t know what I would be doing now if I had gotten an abortion All I know is that I don’t regret keeping my son at all! He made me the wonderful person I am today!

TEEN ABORTION REGRETS

Kat

 Now that it has been almost a year since my abortion, I cannot really do anything but think about what I did to my child.

I was dating an amazing guy. I was his first, and he was my first. We had it in our minds that we would be together forever, but that all changed when I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to keep the baby, but he made me choose. He said, and I quote, It is either me, or THAT! I wanted to be with him SO bad that I made my appointment at the clinic for two weeks from that day.

I thought no one would find out about it; but he told his best friend, who told another person, who told another person; and eventually it got around to everyone; and I was chastised for it every day of my life until this day.

I wake up at night, and I think I hear a baby crying, but then I realize that it is only in my head, and I lie back down and cry myself back to sleep. Girls and Guys, abortion IS permanent. It IS a horrible thing to have to go through, and it IS NOT the only way out.

ABORTION PUSHED BY BOYFRIEND’S FAMILY

Jennifer 

My name is Jennifer.  I am 20 now, but when I had my abortion I was 18. It was March 31. I will never forget that day. I had no choice…well, it felt that way at the time. I was living with my boyfriend’s parents, and his whole family treated me like crap. They put me down and told me I was ruining so many lives. I was told I would have to have an abortion or I would be put out on the street, and I had no family to go to.

I regret it to this day. I just want you ladies to know that this has to be your decision. No one can make this for you. Also remember there are people out there who can help. I only wish I had known that.

TEEN ABORTION PUSHED BY MOM

 Lauren

When I was 14 and a freshman in high school I was pregnant during softball season. They guy I slept with denied it at first and did not even believe me when I told him I was pregnant. Well, my boyfriend started having these crazy ideas that we were going to get married, although he was 20 and I was 14. When I was about 2 ½ months along, my boyfriend told my mom, like an idiot, although I was already showing so much that anyone could tell.

Well, when my mom found out she blew her top and told me that she was going to force me to have an abortion and it did not matter what I wanted. I did not have a say in the matter of my own child. I fought my mom for about a month, and when I was almost 4 months along she took me down to Planned Parenthood and they performed the procedure.

Even two years after the pregnancy and abortion there is never a day that goes by that I don’t think about it when I wake up in the morning. Even now I am still searching for help and closure, which I cannot find.

BOYFRIEND COERCED TEEN’S ABORTION

 

I had an abortion close to five months ago. When I found out that I was pregnant I was four months and two weeks along. It was the hardest thing to hear the nurse say. I was dead set on having it when I heard her say that, until I talked to my boyfriend who, at first, was completely for whatever I wanted. Then he started to think about things and realized things were going to change completely. He convinced me to have the abortion, and it was the most difficult thing I could ever go through.

I still feel like a horrible person for it. All I think about is my baby and how I would be three weeks away from seeing his/her face. I wish I could go back and change things. I thought no one would find out, but somehow they did. I was the talk of the school.

I cried for long hours and did not sleep because I wanted my baby, and I wanted my boyfriend too. He didn’t want the baby, so I did it for him, but he left me the day of the abortion. So think for you and what you want. That is all that will make you happy.

Teen’s abortion dilemma


June 22 will forever stay in my mind and in my heart. You see, that is the day I had my abortion. At the time it didn’t seem like it would be such a big life-changing thing, but it was and it is.
 
I was 19 and had been living with my fiancé for almost a year. I had turned my back on my Christian beliefs, my family, and my friends all in the name of “love.” His reaction to the possibility of my becoming pregnant was, “If that’s how you plan to get me to marry you, then you’re crazy!” Fortunately, I wasn’t pregnant; but a month later, I was.

This time he spoke of his undying love for me and how he wanted us to have children but how unfair it would be to “all of us” at this point. “Don’t you want our kids to have everything we can give them? All the things we never had? Lots of toys? A big house?” And then he mentioned an abortion. I was confused, afraid. I couldn’t stand the idea of disappointing my parents. Moving in with him was one thing. A child born outside of marriage would be quite something else.

I wanted to keep everyone as happy as I possibly could. According to what I could find on the subject, it was really no big deal. No real medical risk just a routine outpatient operation. I’d be home by mid-afternoon. After all, it wasn’t even a baby yet. I was never told anything about the risks, not about the pain, and certainly not about the development of the tiny human inside me.

The day came. The people were very matter-of-fact as they showed me the tube to be used in the suction procedure and “counseled” me. They drew blood, prepped me, and finally stood beside me as a strange, uncaring man took away my child. However, they weren’t there a year later to take away the pain when I would hear a baby cry and yet there was no baby. Mine was gone.

Since then I have denied it, accepted it, and hated it. I have wanted to talk about it, yet refused to discuss it. I hated myself for what I did and hated the “Right to Life” people for making me aware of it. It is shattering to find out after having an abortion that the “blob of tissue” actually had fingers and toes. I went up and down trying to deal with what I had done. I couldn’t tell anyone. Then I finally found the answer for me.

I took it all to Jesus and asked Him to forgive me and to heal me. He has brought me to this point and made me able to face it in hopes of helping someone who is where I once was.

Teen tells abortion story

teen abortion

My name is Jenna, and one of the reasons that I feel so strongly about abortion is that I myself had an abortion. At the time it seemed like the only solution. The family planning clinic I went to for counseling never suggested another alternative. I was given absolutely no information about the development of the baby. In fact, I was told it was a “walnut-sized mass of tissue.”
 
The decision to abort my baby is a decision I’ll regret the rest of my life – it’s irreversible. Later I learned about fetal development and slowly began to realize what I had done. I finally began to let myself grieve for the baby I had aborted.

First I had denied, then I was angry, then I grieved, and now I’ve largely resolved it. As part of my healing, I’ve had to accept my responsibility for the act, accept that I played a part in killing my own baby.

Yes, it still hurts; but I tell my story in the hope that the truth will shine through.

Teen’s abortion guilt won’t go away


My name is Christine.  I was just sixteen when I got pregnant the summer before my junior year in high school. My boyfriend and I were very much in love. As much as I wanted that baby, he was convinced that it was not time for a child. With the help of his brother, after many hours of talking it over, we decided to terminate the pregnancy.
 
He took me to my appointment. I cried the entire time. Shortly after that we broke up. Things were just not the same for us. The guilt we both carried was way too much for us to bear. This is something that has haunted us both all of our lives. It will never go away; and I know because our baby should have been nineteen years old this month.

To this day I still have dreams of a faceless child and wake up in the middle of the night crying. I encourage anyone who is thinking about abortion to go talk to your parents, aunts, or uncles. Get support. Having a child to look at each day for the rest of your life will bring you so much more joy than the pain and guilt you will carry from aborting your baby. Life happens for a reason, and God never gives you anything you can’t handle.

Teen pressured into abortion


My name is Melissa, and I had an abortion at the age of 16. I was pressured to have that abortion by those close to me at the time. I didn’t know anything about fetal development, nothing about how abortions were performed.
 
I did ask the family planning counselor about the possibility of emotional or physical risks and was told that women feel relieved after abortion and that it was much safer than childbirth. And that’s all I was told, even though, at the time, I told the doctor I really wasn’t sure I wanted the abortion.

I know now that if I had basic information about abortion, I probably would have resisted the pressure to abort and would have carried my baby to term. Then my baby would not have lost his or her life and I would have been spared this endless anguish.

Teen feels she had no say in her abortion


My name is Marquisha.  I was 15 years old when I got pregnant. The boy that I was pregnant by said it was not his baby, but I know it was his baby because he was the only boy I slept with in five months. I was only two months pregnant, so I was sure it was his baby. My momma kind of started to notice my stomach was getting big and that I was throwing up a lot, and she then told me to get an abortion…no questions asked. It was like what I had to say did not matter because I had no say in the matter.
 
I really regret having an abortion because I wanted my baby. It would have been hard because I am so young, but I would do anything I could to take care of my baby. It hurts me that I killed my first child. I love kids and it will never happen again. I hate to see baby things and pregnant people because it brings back memories of April 14, 2007; and I will never forget it.

To my baby: I love you and I am very sorry you did not get to live your life because your momma did a terrible thing.

Teen abortion pain

 

My name is Barkha.  The day I found out was July 11. When the doctor came back and told me I was so in shock that I had no idea what to do. I was seeing a great guy at the time, and I called him and told him that we needed to talk. When I told him he was glad and thought we should keep the child. We had a feeling that it was going to be a boy, so we picked a name for him.
 
About a week later it hit us that we are just kids ourselves and we could not take care of a child. July 28 was the day that changed my world. After the abortion I felt so different inside, like kind of relieved. I broke up with the guy I was with because we could not look at each other the same way. It has been almost a year since the abortion, and it hits me every day. I regret it so much. Before you make a decision, think about whether it is worth the pain of only 9 months or the pain of a lifetime.

Teen pushed into abortion


My name is Tessa, and I had an abortion three days ago. It was the hardest decision I have ever made in my life. I went in knowing I wanted to keep my baby, and I came out without him. I feel like my life has no purpose. I cannot breathe sometimes. I was pushed to do something that I did not want to do, and I will never forgive myself for being such a weak individual.

Teen’s abortion sorrow


My name is Lorelle.  It feels like it happened yesterday. I remember my boyfriend telling me that everything will be OK and that he was here for me. I walked into the room and waited for them to call me. I took some medicine so I would not feel as much pain. From there on things happened too fast. The medicine kicked in faster than expected, so they started their procedure. All I can remember is holding my boyfriend’s hand. I wish I could remember more. Now all I remember is that a month ago I killed my baby…and I am so sorry.

Teen’s bf made her choose abortion

My name is Kat.  Now that it has been almost a year since my abortion, I cannot really do anything but think about what I did to my child.
 
I was dating an amazing guy. I was his first, and he was my first. We had it in our minds that we would be together forever, but that all changed when I found out I was pregnant. I wanted to keep the baby, but he made me choose. He said, and I quote, It is either me, or THAT! I wanted to be with him SO bad that I made my appointment at the clinic for two weeks from that day.

I thought no one would find out about it; but he told his best friend, who told another person, who told another person; and eventually it got around to everyone; and I was chastised for it every day of my life until this day.

I wake up at night, and I think I hear a baby crying, but then I realize that it is only in my head, and I lie back down and cry myself back to sleep. Girls and Guys, abortion IS permanent. It IS a horrible thing to have to go through, and it IS NOT the only way out.

Teen’s family suggested abortion

My boyfriend and I were in our first year of college. We had been dating for a year but had known each other for three years. When we found out I was three months pregnant we were very joyful and excited about the arrival of our baby.
 
But feelings changed once we told our families. They believed it was too soon for us because we were just starting our adult lives. They suggested abortion, and we went along with it. Now I feel guilty and ashamed of the thought that I killed an innocent life because my family believed the time was not right.

Every day I cry thinking about my baby. I just want to tell anyone who is thinking of an abortion, please, please make sure it is the right thing to do because there is no turning back after you wake up from surgery.

Teen feels forced into abortion by parents

My name is Amber, and I was 17 years old when I had my abortion. A guy friend of mine and I had planned on having sex. It was my first time, and he said he would take care of me. We worked together, so we knew each other pretty well. After it all happened he stopped talking to me, and I felt like I had been used. Then I found out I was pregnant. I called and told him right away, and he freaked out.
 
I had the abortion because my mom and dad forced me to. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t regret it. I think about it every day and wonder if my baby would have been a boy or a girl.

Teen hates herself because of abortion

Teen Pregnancy

My name is Cara, and I am 17 years old. I got pregnant 4 months ago. When I first found out I was pregnant, I denied it. I denied it to myself and my boyfriend. I finally took a home pregnancy test, and it came out positive. I had to tell my mom, and she basically told me it was all my decision and she could not make it for me…although I wish she did. I went to the doctor. My boyfriend was happy and scared for me at the same time.
 
I got an abortion, and I was really scared. I was a little past 3 months. I hated myself so much. I hate it still. I cry every night. I see pregnant people all the time, and I believe that I am going to hell because of this. I hate myself so much. I wish I had this precious child growing in my stomach still. If I could go back to the day I had the abortion, I would take everything back. I would have my child.

Teen would never choose abortion again

 

My name is Chelsey, and I had an abortion on July 28 of this year. I was 11.5 weeks pregnant. I wanted to change my mind. I wanted to hold my baby 6 months from then, but under the circumstances I could not. Neither my boyfriend nor I could afford to properly take care of the baby, and neither of us had health insurance.
 
I cannot explain how depressed I was going in for my first attempt. I was told I was too far along to see the doctor working that day. I had to come back the next day. I did, and that was not only the worst physical pain I have ever been in, but the worst emotional downpour as well.

To this day I am depressed. I look up the week-by-week progression for pregnancies online and cry and well up at every baby book I pass. I could have found out the sex that next week. I would never make that decision again. It is not worth the emotional turmoil and the depression I am stuck in now.

I killed my baby…not just mine…but I killed the baby of a man I love more than anything in this world. I will never forgive myself. I cried every time I was alone for 6 days straight. Now I cannot seem to get out of this emotional slump that nothing matters any more.

So, to my sweet baby in heaven, I love you, I miss you, and I am forever sorry. The day I can smile again is the day I will meet you face to face. You are forever in my heart.

Teen Rethinks Abortion

Teen Abortion

My name is Roxanne.  Last year on December 28, 2006, the day before I turned 18, I had an abortion. It was the biggest mistake I have ever made in my life, and I regret it every day. It was really hard for me because I did not want to get it, and neither did my boyfriend. At the same time I just kept thinking about how scary it was knowing that I was going to be having a child. It was weird because every day before I found out I was pregnant, I wanted a baby really bad. It made me happy when I found out that I was; but after awhile I just got really emotional and did not know what to do. It was also harder because the whole time I was pregnant I could not do anything because I was sick every day, and it sucked. All I kept thinking was I did not want to be sick any more.
 
Now that it is over all I keep thinking is that I would do anything in the world to go back and not have gotten the abortion. Even though I was sick all the time, it would have been worth it after he or she was born. Now all I want is to have another baby. Every day I wish that I would get pregnant. So, if anyone is trying to decide to get an abortion or to keep your child, please keep it. Trust me, if you have an abortion you will think about what you did every day, and it will be the biggest mistake you ever make in your whole life.
