Your Dreams Are Real, So Are Abortions.
2015 United States
What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?
How did you do the abortion?
My experience was like woahh I am a African American young lady who slept with some who does not have a job nor does he have a diploma. When I decided abortion was the only choice, I had to come up with $400+ because the clinic near me did not take my moms insurance and I did not want her to know. Even with support I felt so alone. I worked on weekends and stayed on top of my AP classes in order to afford my abortion. Imagine receiving xmas money that you had to save to get a abortion? Sucks a**. I am not a selfish person but to me in Gods eyes what I did was selfish and I cannot live that down but I always wish and pray he will forgive me. During the abortion it was so painful I wanted to cry and I bled for 3 weeks none stop and I actually heard the baby fetus go *dump* in the toilet. And I just thought "what if that was me with my mom" or "what if that could of been my successful unborn child"? But overall I had to think reasonable and think, I will not put my baby in an awkward situation where he/she couldn't ask for something for christmas mommy couldn't get. So whether you got prego by accident or by force through rape, incest, etc. SPEAK UP! IT IS YOUR BODY! Do not let the father or anybody else tell you what is wrong, if you're not ready then YOU ARE NOT READY! NOT THEM! Live for you, but next time be careful. I'm still learning and hopefully one day when I am ready my children will know about the decision I made in my bathroom that day.
What was your situation at this time?
A Scholar student with a full ride to college and with one parent with two jobs(mom) and another unemployed diabetic who goes blind in one eye every now and then(dad). My choices had pushed me to not go through with this pregnancy.
Benze ntoni abanye abantu xa ukhupha isisu?
A lot people who were close to me were relieved that I picked the right choice as a young lady because of college. But my parents and family will never know about my abortion. I am pretty sure they would be disappointed to know that I decided to have unprotected sex and at 17 about to be 18 in two months and graduate 6 months later trying to be someones mother. But my real friends were supportive and one was so supportive she even saw me as a fit mom but I knew the time was NEVER RIGHT AND THE DECISION WAS NO...
What is your religion?
I had an abortion and don't regret it.
Abortei aos 17 anos.
Yo he abortado 4 veces.
I had a surgical, had two kids, and then had medical abortion.
Yo aborté! porque es mi derecho!
Una lucha constante.

Hmm, he was supposed to be here by now… I sigh…
I had an abortion
Mirar hacia adelante.
My abortions defined my life choices for decades
At the young age of 17, I was the victim of sexual assault. There is nothing…
Si se lo pudiera decir a alguien sin que me juzgue no me sentiría así
Se fosse legalizado, sofreria menos. Seria diferente
Saya masih duduk di kelas 3 SMA saat melakukan aborsi. Saya sudah pacaran…
