I had a medical abortion on 5 June 2013 (5 days ago), 8 weeks into my pregnancy.

This birth mother's story is one of an unwanted pregnancy, with an unsupportive partner. When she had her son she found she had no love for him, and eventually asked her ex partner to take him.
August 31st, 2011 my world came crashing down on me when I was told my unborn daughter was no longer living. Today I still remember it like it was yesterday. When the doctor came in the room by the look on her face I could tell something was wrong. She sat down, and held my hand and told me my daughter was gone. I cried. I screamed. I wanted to run out of the hospital and get away from the world. I wanted this to be a nightmare. But, I wasn't dreaming unfortunately.
This woman has found herself pregnant from an abusive relationship, and doesn't know what to do.
One night at the age of 15 I was just roaming the streets drinking, smoking and just thinking nothing would go wrong with a large group of friends.

We finally met on the 3rd of February, we chilled together, had lunch, did some recreational activities and eventually had sex. Biggest mistake; I didn't use a condom, she didn't ask for a condom and she was on her period

Anyway, I noticed some very light spotting and called my doctor to verify that all was ok, and the nurse reassured me that it was, and gave me some tips of what to look for in case I needed to go to the hospit
The guy was a 'friend' of mine. He did some horrible things to me.
After he did what he did he called me later on that day on a blocked number. Told me he loved me and a lot more.. I told him I never want to see/ hear of him again. He told me if I hung up on him he would take his own life.
