I was 17 when I told my mother I was pregnant. She said we had to take care of it before my father and family found out. I had to have an abortion. I told her I was about 5 weeks into my pregnancy.
My former boyfriend and I actually wanted to keep the baby, but knowing that we were not finically or mentally stabled to bring another human being into this world we wouldn't and couldn't be able to do that. My mom made it seem that an abortion was the only right thing to do for me and my future life. Since I've had my abortion I have been looking for some way to relieve my feelings of grief and regret. I've never been so disappointed and ashamed of myself. I will always carry this with me. I will forever be unable to forgive myself. I was only 17 years old and everyone says how it stays with you, but God and going to Church helped my sorrows of this traumatic experience in my life.
Carrying a child of someone you were deeply, and emotionally involved with, and having to give it up was one of the hardest things I have had to do. I felt pressured from my own mother for aborting my child that I was about to give life to. Every time I see a baby or a pregnant woman I feel sick, I cannot sleep, I cannot eat, I cannot feel normal. I have never regretted a decision more than I have this one, but I know it was for the best. My message is to females all around the world is if you are not stable in your life or do not think you can support your child like you want to. Stay abstinence from intercourse, or be very carful with using protection.
