I was 19 the day I found out I was pregnant my heart sunk into my stomach. I went to the clinic because I was having horrible headaches. In New York they give girls 16 and up a pregnancy test as its procedure. The nurse then told me I was pregnant. That night I later called my boyfriend and told him the news. He was supportive of whatever my choice was. Then a few days later he said we where just 19 and couldn’t afford a child now. So that night we agreed on abortion. But deep down I wanted to keep my child but I thought I loved my boyfriend more and didn’t want to lose him. After having the abortion I broke up with him because I couldn’t look at him the same. Abortion isn’t just something you take lightly. It’s a life changing choice You and only you can make. I wake up days thinking of my child knowing I’ll never be able to hold my baby in my arms. Abortion is a horrible long term life choice.
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.
