Can I Sue?
Due to my abortion, I suffered extreme PAS. I almost killed myself and
had to withdraw my Spring semester of college. When I went to the doctor for a
check-up I was hysterical. He was like you have to get help, there is no way we
are doing a check-up.
He referred me to my local pregnancy center, where I received intensive
counseling to overcome the trauma. I am so mad at the clinic because they did
not discuss any other option than abortion, even though I repeatedly said I
didn't know what I wanted to do. They only reconfirmed my fears about being
scared of lack of money and I didn't know if I would finish school.
My boyfriend was with me. Neither of us wanted abortion yet we felt there was
no other option. We would be left poor, never finishing school and giving the
child a bad life. In the end they won. She told me it was only a clump of
tissues and there was no baby. I was between 9-10 and later found out that the
baby was fully developed. No one questioned me having the abortion no even the
doctor. When he saw the horror in my eyes as I was strapped down because I was
put to sleep. All he said was, "Don’t worry I'll take good care of you sweetie".
Can I sue? I have been through so much hell and I know so many women are
being subject to this misinformation. I had to withdraw from college because I
went form having a 4.0 to F's. I couldn’t concentrate and I was consumed with
the abortion. How could I let him kill my child. I feel so violated. I was
not informed and had I been told a way I could pay for the baby I would have
her today. My boyfriend was very supportive and the abortion counselor noted
that in her notes. She could have recommended a social worker or referred me to
the Medicaid which I found out later would have paid for my child. I cannot sit
back and let these people destroy other lives.
