Hi my name is Destiny. I just had a surgical abortion about six hours ago. I came to your site the day before I went in and I spent about 2 hours yesterday reading about all these young girls that are pregnant and feel lost. They all touched me.
I am 17 and was 2 months pregnant. I never thought that it would happened to me. To tell you the truth getting an abortion was not what I really wanted.
When my boyfriend and I went to planned parenthood for the first time to take a pregnancy test it was the worst. His mind was already set on me getting an abortion. I could not believe that that’s what he wanted me to do. I really thought — since I have been with him for two years that he would have supported me in whatever decision I make.
I didn’t know what to do.
I then told my mom that I was pregnant which was the hardest part! She of course wanted me to keep the baby. She kept telling me how killing the baby was against God and her. I was torn between two decisions. At that point, it made it so much harder for me. I didn’t know what I was going to do.
This was my baby and I wanted it whether my boyfriend was going to be around or not.
I know that he loves me but I just don’t get how me getting an abortion was so easy to do. He wasn’t going to have to deal with the emotional pain I was! I kept telling him that I wasn’t sure what I was going to do — which made him go crazy at the idea of me keeping my baby. He told me that we were too young to have a baby. He is 18 and not a little boy anymore.
If I only could have had his support I know that I would have kept my baby. Now I’m so hurt inside I feel so guilty and torn. I blame him and i never want to see him again.
Is that wrong?
