I had a late term abortion at 25 weeks. I had scheduled an abortion at 7 weeks but had backed out of it because I was scared. I kept pushing it off and pushing it off, I just really didn’t want to deal with it. I was scared shitless. Anyway, I convinced my doctor and psychiatrist that I was severely depressed, and suffering from anorexia. Anyway, long story short the procedure was horrifying. Idk if I regret it but I do know that it wasn’t for medical reasons and was fairly easy to get.
I think it’s very normal to wonder about decisions that you’ve made, especially enormous decisions like an abortion.
I don’t think you’re a horrible person. I think it’s normal to be scared and many people deal with fear by procrastinating (yours truly is a queen of it).
I’m not into shaming for abortions (in case you couldn’t tell by my blog…). You did what you had to do, I support you, and I think most of the pro-choice community supports you.
I appreciate you coming forward with this type of information. I think it’s important for other people to see what’s going through the mind of someone who has been in a tough spot like that. It’s not always easy to share, because the pro-life movement has made it so abundantly clear that they will hate you for it.
But I won’t hate you for it. Thank you for reading, thank you for sharing, and I hope you are doing well with the decision that you made.
This person has just proven what we all already knew — that late-term babies are not butchered to protect the lives of their mothers. She admitted that it was easy to get her ‘doctor’ to slaughter her TWENTY-FIVE WEEK OLD child.
This is what ‘pro-choice’ is fighting for. This is what they are so proud of.
How much longer will we continue to stand for this depravity? This person’s child did not deserve to die this way. No human being deserves to die this way.
It’s time to take a stand. It’s time to do something to stop the killing. It’s time to confront those who use an unjust law to destroy their own sons and daughters. It’s time to finally end this human atrocity.
