I was left in a room alone and I was scared

I was 16 and I felt that I had no other way out of the situation. My stepmother dominated me and controlled my father. If I didn't abort, I was going to be thrown out of the house.

I was told absolutely nothing about the abortion. I mean I was kept so ignorant. I didn't even know the doctor's name. I had no idea what the procedure involved.

The 24 hrs. before the procedure was very physically painful. I was cramping severely from the laminaria inserted to dilate my cervix. I was left in a room alone and I was scared.

The abortion affected me because I tried to stifle my feelings. I became angered more easily. I tried to justify the abortion by defending abortion rights even though I was now against it.

After the abortion I went for counseling and participated in pro-life activities. I donated clothes and baby things to the crisis pregnancy center.

The abortion has changed me because it made me appreciate the dignity and value of human life more than ever before. So, in some ways, my baby's death wasn't in vain.
