My boyfriend did not want a baby
I was not married, although I was 20 years old, my mother was terribly upset.
I wanted to have the baby, my mother was going to force my boyfriend, by threats
to provide for me. My boyfriend did not want a baby at that time.
It was a bit scary, not really knowing what was happening. Although everyone
at center was considerate of me and my feelings, I was hurt inside that
something that I was happy about caused so much pain for other people.
Things worked out for my mom and boyfriend and I, but there was always a
shadow that could not clear up between my mom and I.
I got lots of information, I prayed that I would be forgiven for not taking
the responsibility of tending to one of God's baby's. I know in my heart that
this sin is as far away from me "as east is from west".
After the abortion, I became wiser, stronger and decided that I shouldn't do
something I knew was wrong only because someone else didn't want me to or let
someone try to control me for whatever reasons.
