When I see a baby I remember what I did to mine
I was involved with an African American and got pregnant. (I am white.) My
Mom and Dad didn't want me to "ruin" my life by having a mixed baby.
I don't remember much about the abortion because I was under a sedative.
The abortion affected me strongly. I was thinking about what I did all the
time. It stays with me even when I see a baby I remember what I did to mine.
After the abortion, I talked to my friends, wrote a letter to my baby about
why I did this and I cried a lot.
This has changed my life because I don't think I could ever have another
abortion. I couldn't put myself through the emotional pain again.
