    Have you had an abortion?

    Biggest regret of my life

    As a teenager, I became pregnant from a man in his 20s. He and my mother forced me to get an abortion. I was told by the salesperson at Planned Parenthood that there was "no baby", just a clump of cells. They described what would happen as "some cramping, and then it's over". None of that was true. There was a baby at 13 weeks - they knew that, but as an igorant teenager I didn't. The abortion was the worst pain of my life. Afterward I battled major depression and substance abuse for years. The "man" never talked to me again, and after my mother beat me she kicked me out on the street. When I got older I saw what the baby I was pregnant with would've looked like, and what the abortionist actually did to her. They ripped her apart into pieces, and someone later made sure they had her head, her little torso, legs... It was the worst decision I ever made. I feel so horrible for what happened to my baby. I will always regret my abortion. I hope no one ever has an abortion, that they never take the innocent life of a child no matter the circumstance. Abortion never heals.
