Abortion Poem by Teens

Choosing Abortion

I was a 18 year old girl facing the hardest decision of my life. Do I choose life or death. Both could have changed my life forever. I was so helpless because of course I was suppose to do the right thing; I have a full athletic scholarship and with out that I had no way to pay for college. My boyfriend didn't understand he wasn't there to watch it move around or hear the heart beat. All I kept thinking was what now. Do I chose life or death; either way I was going to become another statistic.

What Now

Published: September 2011

Your knees are shaken
You see that red line appear
How far can you go from here?
You look in the mirror
All you see is a face full of fear
What now you think
Would you rather have a child with nothing
Or have a life full of something
You want to tell him
Full of excitement you can hardly hold a tear
Look something is growing
But you know the consequences
What now you think
A tiny image appeared
Now you fear
What now you think
How can you destroy something so dear.
You shed a tear hoping God will hear.
You pray God please don't let it fear
Tell them I didn't mean for it to happen
But for now God please hold my child dear
You hear the tiny sound of a drum
That's when it all goes numb
All you can hear is that heart go thump
What now you think
The decision is yours they say
No matter what it's yours
A cruel blessing in disguise
How can you tell this guy
What now you think
The day has come
One last sound 
It won't stop jumping around
God where can you be found??!
You feel it moving
Maybe it knows what you are doing
To stop that poor little baby in the making.
What now you think
It's done
You feel shunned
Maybe you got to feel all of the pain
Your tears pour down like its raining
Now you think what have I done.

I was 14 years old when I too saw that red line... the baby's daddy basically said you're on your own bitch. so I had no father, no food. and no one to help me through it. I therefore was forced to abort. and now I look back and I know that what I did was right.. I won't ever let people bring me down for it either. and you shouldn't either...

I think you are very brave for doing that. I don't think I could ever do it. I know people have their reasons for doing what they do. I'm kind of against abortion, but then I know it's now my choice all I know is that I couldn't do it. I think it is up to the mother to decide. So I think you are very very very brave person for being able to do that for your baby. To me you were giving it a better life in away by not letting it into this world. If you couldn't support it.
