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.
