I wanted to be punished for what I was doing

I was 16 years old and didn’t know what to do. My boyfriend hadn’t come around for a couple of weeks after I told him, so I told my parents. They insisted I have an abortion.

It was very heartbreaking. I didn’t really want it. I wouldn’t take anything for pain because I wanted to be punished for what I was doing. It was painful.

I have always regretted having it especially after having my other children (4) and realizing how much I love them. My boyfriend at that time never had children.

At the time, I lied to those friends that knew I was pregnant and told them I lost the baby. Since then, I’ve been honest about it and have encouraged others not to do so. That has helped me.

It has made me aware of how important life is and that the most precious thing in the world is a new born baby. I place a very high value on life.
