Roar will publish a first-person story about abortion, “My Abortion: A Daily Story,” every day for at least 365 days.
This story comes from the tumblr of Diamond At Midnight.
This week I had my first abortion and I feel like I need to get my story out co there is so much crap about abortion and people are scared to come out and tell their story.
I was 7 weeks 3 day when I had an abortion, I wasn’t sad or sorry, I didn’t feel guilty, I was happy that I lived in Australia and that I had this option and I didn’t have people that don’t understand taking my right way from my body that I could choose to have an abortion.
I found out at 6 weeks I was pregnant, I cry because I was scared, I made a stupid mistake, it took 2 tests to believe it but I was pregnant. I made the choice to have an abortion coz to me having it would have made my made my life hard I didn’t have a job I had a car I still have to pay off and I wouldn’t have anywhere to live if I keep it, yes you could say it was selfish BUT it was my choice and I had made it.
I saw the doctor is was very understanding didnt ask me questions why I had made my choice, I must say it was a guy doctor and didnt know some of the answers to my questions but I was okay with that. He said I should use the abortion pill but I didn’t want something to go wrong while I was by myself at home so I went with the surgical abortion at ‘Dr Marie’ for the following week.
It was the longest week of my life waiting and I couldn’t believe I was getting morning sickness, my grew and my stomach felt like I had food poisoning the whole time. I couldn’t believe I was going thought this so early on, like I thought this happened when your like in the 20 weeks.
Finally the day had come, because it was surgical I couldn’t eat or drink so I felt so sick all day, by the time of my appointment I was happy and knew this was the right thing.
I worked into the first office filled out paper work and wait 2 hours for a doctor to call my name, finally it was going to happen. The first doctor took me into a room and was very sweet and talked to me about my reasons and she was not judgemental or anything. The next doctor took me to get an ultrasound and asked me if I had any questions about the surgery I had none because I had done so much googling about the abortion. 45 mins later I was told to take off my pants and undies but I could keep my top on and put on a robe and head into the surgery.
I had twilight sedation and was out like a light in no time. I woke up 20 minutes later, I got food and water. I felt like because I understood what was happening I woke myself up quick and the doctors checked me and let me get changed and go.
I felt fine after, I wasn’t sad about having an abortion, I didn’t at all feel guilty for the choice I made for my life. I feel happy to have my body back. I went out to dinner after and felt so happy it only took a week for everything to happen.
All these ‘pro life’ people most of the would have never been pregnant so why are they making people who choose to have an abortion feel guilty about there choice they make for their body.
Don’t feel guilty for your choice you make
