Post-Abortive Woman: “I Regret This Experience Every Day”

By Sarah Terzo

A post-abortive woman named Tammy tells her story:

“I was a scared 16-year-old girl when I had my abortion. It is the worst decision I have ever made and I have regretted it for the nearly 20 years since it happened. I went to a clinic in Illinois. I was a minor, of course, and did not have to have any parental consent.

“I also did not receive proper counseling. I have no idea to this day what kind of procedure I had. I was also not sure how far along I was in the pregnancy.

“I do remember discussion between the doctor and nurse stating the pregnancy was farther along than they originally thought. That did not stop them from doing the procedure.

“I was left afterward feeling worthless, empty, and I regret this experience every single day. It has taken years for me to recover emotionally, although I am not sure if a woman can ever completely recover.”
