I’m just turned 19. I had an abortion on July 10th 2007. I was 19 weeks and 1 day. Very late on.
Editor’s note: Thank you for telling us your story…I get the feeling that there is so much more underneath what you have written with regard to your experience. Just the fact that you’ve found this site and written your story here tells me that something in your heart is looking for something. The abortion couldn’t have been an easy thing to go through, especially given the pressures you were under at the time. Your ‘head’ may have told you that this was the best thing to do, but it sounds as if your heart has been in some pain since then. It may be that not only do you feel regret, but a range of other emotions too. Perhaps you feel that this second pregnancy is one that will be healing for you. Whatever you are experiencing at an emotional level, there is support available for you if you ever need it. We wish you well in your new pregnancy.
