Learning to Live With It

  Julie
Texas,  United States
 
  I had my abortion because my parents wanted it for me, to not burden my future with a child. I was 15 and didn't know how to defend my baby. I was in trouble and I acted that way. I have always regretted not defending him/her.

I ran away within two months after the abortion. I was a runaway when I conceived.  Fifteen months after I ran away, I gave birth to twin daughters.

I don't believe I will ever forgive myself...I have just learned to live with it. That is why I am silent no more.
