An abortion at 13

By anonymous on 05/10/2010
I'm 13. Been to hell and back. I've made mistakes like every human being . I had an abortion 10 months ago. Some people say that I should be able to deal with the consequences since I got pregnant like a grown woman. But I deal with them everyday. I wish I didn't get pregnant but I also I would've made my decision with a clear head. I don't regret my abortion I just hate wondering what could've been. It hurts...all the time.

Editor's Comment

A difficult experience at any age but very hard to cope with such a major decision at 13. I hope you have the support that you need from family, friends, or health professionals. Please call the free national helpline 0300 4000 999 if you would like to talk to a trained advisor for more help.
