During my adolescence, I was very protective with my reproduction parts and didn't allow anyone one to tell me what to do and what not to do with "my body", I was pro-choice and pro-abortion. I had visited Planned parenthood where I and other teens got birth control with out parent consent because I was protected as a minor. I remember knowing classmates that would get abortions because they were "not ready to be a mom" and I gave them props for not ruining their life. Even one of my friend got an abortion wish I even told her that I supported her decision because it's her body and besides it wasn't a baby its just a tissue like Planned parenthood would state. In my young 20's, I got pregnant but I was not ready to be a mother and I knew right away to get an abortion at 10 weeks without my parents knowledge because it was my decisions and my right. That day I was called in to the procedure room by a nurse that was so cold in personality so careless and I started to feel like I had no support from the medical staff. I was sedated but still hurt very much but I knew it was the right decision. I remember hearing the doctor say "IT'S OUT, you're done". I went home that day with mixed feelings. I had always supported abortion and there I am having mixed feelings about it. The statement "IT'S OUT" was stuck in my mind and I wonder what was out? what did the doctor look at? is it really a piece of tissue like I been told? I told my self that I had made the right decision and that I had to forget about it and move on with my young life. 2 days later I started to feel such pelvic pain and had chills. I did not tell anyone but my friend that I had an abortion because it was nobody's business what I did with my "BODY". I remember going to my friends house all pale trying to act normal but when I got there I started to bleed and passed out. When I woke up, I was at the hospital with an I.V in place having a doctor and a nurse wait for me to wake up. I asked the doctor what had happened, they told me that I was bleeding vaginally. My friend had told them that 2 days ago I had an abortion and when the doctors examined me they found FETAL parts remaining in my uterus. I felt like my world was collapsing one me. I thought for a minute "FETAL PARTS NOT TISSUE PARTS". That days was the worst day of my life, I went home and researched online the meaning of "FETUS" and researched "ABORTION PROCEDURE".I broke down in tears because everything I once supported and defended had betrayed me and lied to me. I saw a sonogram of a fetus of 10 wks, which had arms, legs, heartbeat and looked like a mini baby. How could I killed my own child? how could the abortion clinic lie to me? I was in major depression for years and had to get psychological help because of I had made the "CHOICE" on killing my own child for such a selfish decision. Woman really need to be properly informed about fetal development and what exactly is an abortion procedure. IT IS NOT A TISSUE, IT'S A BABY. Don't let people fool you.
