I was so scared as a 14-year-old...

"I was so scared as a 14-year-old going to the 9th grade—I found out that I was having a child. The father was 3 years older than me but was very happy about being a father; I, on the other hand, was not. He didn't like and still doesn't like the fact that I "killed his child." My mother found out and I begged for her to let me get an abortion. She did and the experience was horrible. I was almost a month pregnant so they gave me some pills to start the process. I went into this room and they put me to sleep but I still remember seeing the lights and hearing the sounds of that doctor and the sounds of the tools that he used. Now I am 16 and a 10th grader in high school. Sometimes when I see girls my age having children, I regret my decisions but then again I know that I did the right thing. I did not wanna to bring any child in this world because I knew that I couldn't provide. I never was for abortion before my experience, but now I know that everything happens for a reason. I haven't had sex since my abortion. I also plan on having children in the future but only when I'm married and when I'm sure that I am able to provide." —Anonymous
