It's been 4 months but I still regret it every day.By anonymous on 10/02/2012
I had an abortion last October and even though it's been four months on I still regret it everday. Me and my boyfriend were only together for a few months when I found out I was pregnant. When I told him, the first thing he said was get rid of it and then went on an all boys holiday so I was left to deal with it on my own. I firstly just wanted to keep it but when I told a few close friends, some of them said keep it and some of them said just get an abortion. I knew deep down that I wanted to keep it and raise this child but I was thinking that it was bad timing and could I actually raise a child? Was I ready? After speaking to my parents, they said that it was best to get an abortion, so we booked it and I went with my mum a week later.
I hadn't spoken to my boyfriend since I told him and he was still on holiday. When I rang he just said do what you want, I don't care and we broke up. When I got there I was taken into a seperate room to change and I was crying for ages. The nurse said to me 'are you sure you want to do this, there are other options' and I said yes sorry. But if I could go back in time everytime I would say 'no, I want to keep and raise my child'.
