I was 17 years old when I found out I was pregnant. At first my boyfriend and I were so excited that we would soon become parents. When the day came that I told my parents that I was having a child, they only wanted to go along with abortion. I had never even considered it before then and I know now that I would never consider it again. My parents made me feel like I had no other option but to abort. When my boyfriend told his parents, they, too, pushed for abortion. Knowing that I had already disappointed so many people, I reluctantly agreed. I went to the clinic and my child was terminated. I was 8 weeks pregnant. I have never felt so alone before that day. The experience was scaring. I have never wanted to do something over more than this. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about my child; whether it would have been a girl or boy. I hate myself when I think that I took the life of an innocent baby that was never given a chance. I still cry at night and wish I was still pregnant. For any girl that is considering abortion, or any guy whose child might be aborted, really think about what you want to do. Abortion may seem like the easy way out, but in the end, is all the emotional stress and hardship really worth it when you could be holding your baby boy or girl in your arms? I would give anything to be able to hold my child. Whether you think you’ll have someone to support you or not, you will. You will never be alone. I just want to tell my child that I love and miss you more than you could ever know. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you or wish that I could see you grow up. I am so sorry that I did this to you.
