The best you can do now is learn from it...learn to trust your own instinct, learn to grieve the consequences of all that you do and don't do and try to keep that pain from being repeated in the future. But it does NO GOOD to wish you were dead. If you regret feeling like you have wasted a life, why waste your own life too? Instead, why don't you see if you can help others avoid going through what you went through?

I was 18 she was 16. We got pregnant and had an abortion. Its been close to 30 years, we are not together - don't even know what happened to her. I have a wife and wonderful children. I am pro-choice even, but I think of that little unborn baby everyday of my life. It never goes away but it does get better in time.

I agree with the last poster. I had an abortion 8years ago or so...I think about it very often not everyday anymore but it is still there. I don't think I have truly forgivin myself for it. I am also prochoice still but would highly reccomend not proceeding with it. needless to say i have learned the lesson and have two beautiful children. I think whoever it was forgave me.

I had an abortion many years ago and have Never regretted it for one moment. the ones who do are usually people who Forget how it Really was and Why they made that choice in the first place. there was a reason you allowed yourself to make the decision you did. beside that, if you were really coerced, your b-friend would've made a shitty dad anyway & you're better off. all you can do now is take off the rose-colored glasses, or better yet, STOP LOOKING BACK at all!!!

I was 18 she was 15, and then again when I was 21 and she was 18, same girl, 2 abortions. 4 and a half years together. 1st time she was too young, second time she was going to college. As far as I know her parents don't know about it. That was 20 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't regret it and I hate myself because of it. I am supposed to have a 21yr old child..18yr old, I wonder how they would have looked and I wish I knew them, what color hair, boy or girl..... I heard she is married and went on to have a couple of children. Her name is Katie. I do not know if she thinks about me or the abortions. I am married now to a woman with 4 children of her own and has her tubes tied, so now I am a stepdad, no babies for me.

What on earth would you do with a baby at seventeen? Who would support the two of you? Certainly not the BF who impregnated you - the taxpayers would support you! Teeneagers belong in school, not having babies. Finish your education and have a family when you are an adult.

All you need to do is mention the words "gay", "lesbian", "black", "abortion", "asian", or "latino", and the haters come out of the woodwork!
