Abortion Poem

At 17 years old I found myself pregnant with my first child, My Aunt continually tried to convince me to abort, although it was a difficult decision to make I chose LIFE, and this poem is a dedication 13 years later to my beautiful daughter. Unfortunately I have experienced both sides of abortion and although I have never regretted keeping my daughter, I still regret not keeping my other baby, so if faced with the choice please choose life because Remorse Is Forever.

My beautiful daughter that has been through so much.
My day gets better with your every touch.
You are my Qwydie my precious gem.
You are more than my daughter, Mommy's best friend.
I call you Peppa cause you add spice to my life.
When everything was going wrong you were all that was right.
No one could understand what you mean to me.
When I was imprisoned in my mind you help set me free.
You are my shining superstar.
Mommy has your back, I will never be far.
My heart melts as I watch you grow.
You are my precious ANGEL and I love you so.
I was blessed with you, when my life was bleak.
So thank you Qwydie for saving me.
You have a heart of gold, and the spirit to match.
If children were butterflies I have the perfect catch.
Never stop being who you are.
In life I know you will go far.
You are so bright, your intelligence surprises me.
Other than here raising you there is no place I'd rather be.
I'm sorry for the obstacles you've faced in your life.
I promise you baby Mommy will make it right.
We finally have a HOME to call OUR OWN.
That's a big start to fixing what was wrong.
I LOVE YOU QWYIRA and don't you forget it.
For having you young I will never regret it

I am almost 30 and mother of 2, but I had an abortion at 16. And to this day I regret it. My mother and the father didn't want me to have it, my mom, for fear of my father's reaction and the boy for fear of his mother's reaction. Funny thing I had a 10 year relationship with the same boy, but when we wanted children, it didn't happen. I left him and got pregnant from another man. Now I am a mother and understands the love of a child, I cry even more for the one I did not protect. I went in crying, but wasn't brave enough to have it. That is why I loved this poem, because it isn't the end of the world when a teenager gets pregnant and decides to have her child. BUT the regret and the pain will always be there. I have a girl, and I will never allow her to do that, for I am still in mourn for my little baby. I ask any teenager who got pregnant: please don't throw it away, it's gonna be hard, but it sure isn't the end of the world.

I had an abortion on the 17th June 2010, today would be my babies due date, I wanted to post my story to say to people out there not to be forced to something you didn't want to do. I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant, as soon as I found out I wanted to keep it. I was soo happy and excited about having my own baby, someone I could love unconditionally for the rest of my life. my boyfriend (at the time) was not supportive and told me I'd be a horrible mum and made me doubt myself. I then told my mum, hoping for support but she gave me none. I felt alone and scared and gave in to them asking me to have an abortion. the second I went through with it I regretted it. I stopped talking to my mum and me and the boyfriend broke up. I suffered and still am suffering major depression, I would do anything to take that day back. I miss my baby every second of everyday and hope they are waiting for me in heaven. I will always love you and miss you xxxx

hi my name is Ann and I'm 17 years old and pregnant. I am very scared and don't know what to do. I moved out of my house when I was 16 an have been living with my boyfriend and his family since. when I had moved out my family and family friends basically told me that my life is going to go down hill and I'm going to end up pregnant, so now I just kind of feel like I'm proving them right. I don't believe in abortion but at this point I don't know anymore. will my life ever be the same? and if I have this baby how will I begin to put back the pieces of my life?

I love this poem it has me here in tears I to was a teen mom (15) when I had my daughter and I still managed to finish school and support her against all the mean comments others would say and she is the blessing of my life. I graduated from the police academy became an officer and she's now 13 years old I'm 28 and to all those that told me I couldn't do it I will say YES I CAN!

I'm here to comment on jessi's comment about if you put your baby up for adoption than it will be safe in someones arms, well I beg to differ. I am in a group home right now and I have seen plenty of children come in and out because of the fact that they were mistreated by their foster parents so I just thought I would add that in. I'm neither for nor against abortion but I do believe that jessi was right about how God does not make mistakes. I just feel that maybe some 13 year old girl got raped and ended up pregnant than they should have the right to abortion but if some girl just has sex and gets knocked up then they should take the responsibility and raise that child. I saw a quote one day that read "God please send someone to cure cancer, aids ect... and God "said" "I did but you aborted it" so just thought that was cool.

I absolutely love this poem.

I have never gotten pregnant but I think if I do get pregnant I will chose life.
I believe God doesn't make mistakes so to abort a child brings many years of sorrow, regret, misery, and depression. Many women across the nation have gotten an abortion but I'm not saying they're wrong I'm saying that was their decision. There are other options other than abortion, there is adoption. many men and women can't have children so they adopt. You can help them by at least giving your child up for adopting. That will bring emotions also but at least you know that some where out in the world your child is safe in someone's arms.
