Still Trying to Forgive Myself

California,  United States

I had an abortion because I was very scared when my boyfriend found out I was pregnant he wanted nothing to do with me anymore so I did not know what to do by myself and his baby that was growing inside me.

My doctor told me my baby was going to be born sick and that he recommended an abortion.

My family is from Mexico and never talked about abortion.  They never even knew I was pregnant.
When I went to the clinic I was very scared I cried the whole time we were waiting for my turn for my abortion. I didn't want that but what was I going to do with a sick child and all alone? I’ve never been able to forgive myself.  Still trying.  It’s an awful feeling .
