Abortion Pill

Woman says taking the abortion pill as a teen ‘haunts me every single day of my life’

On the website AbortionChangesYou.com, a woman shared how she took the abortion pill, and felt tremendous regret afterward. The workers at the abortion facility lied to her when she took the first pill, saying, “This is it. This pill stops the development, the growth. Once you take this, there’s no way back.”

In reality, it may be possible to reverse the abortion pill, and many women have done so with the help of medical professionals using the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol. Rebekah, the woman in the video below, is one of those women:


The woman who shared her story on the website said she moved to Los Angeles from South America a little over a year before her abortion. She met her boyfriend soon after she arrived in the U.S. She was 17 and he was 26.

When she found out she was pregnant, she felt a “mixture of happiness, fear, confusion, excitement.”

But when she told her boyfriend, his response was, “WE HAVE TO GO KILL IT NOW.”

She said, “Words have not been invented to describe what I felt then…. He might as well have taken a gun and put it to my head.”

She told her mother, who said she “didn’t think it was a good idea for me to have it,” and ended up pressuring her daughter:

[M]y mom made sure to add guilt to the equation, by asking me how I was going to do that to my child, to make it be born without a father, without a proper family, with no way to feed it, with nothing to give.

She didn’t tell her father because she knew he would be unsupportive. Her sister was battling infertility, yet rather than offer to adopt the baby, the pregnant woman’s sister told her, “You HAVE to abort it. You CAN’T have it.” She had no support:

You know… when your man says “We have to go kill it”, your mom says “I don’t think you should have it” and your unfertile sister says “You HAVE to abort it”… You should probably flip them off, turn around and walk away. The question was, walk away to where? To a job that doesn’t even pay ME enough to survive? To what other family? I knew no one and had no friends in Los Angeles, since I didn’t even attend college, all I did was work and see my boyfriend. I was alone. COMPLETELY alone…. But… I WANTED it… I wanted to have it… It was my baby.

She went through with the abortion, and it was traumatic for her. She wrote:

That night, I felt I was going to literally die. As if I didn’t have enough emotional pain… The cramps from the pill felt like someone was stabbing me in the uterus. It went on for a few hours. I screamed. I was sweating cold. I was shaking. My mom was holding my hand the entire time, and the look on her face… There just, aren’t words.


Since then she has suffered extreme regret:

I have regretted this, not every single day, but every single SECOND of my life since then. A year and 3 months have passed, and it still hurts. Aborting what would have been my first baby is the one thing that haunts me every single day of my life.

She warns other women, “Don’t make that mistake. Aborting the baby doesn’t make it go away. The baby stays with you, FOREVER, and every baby that you look at from now on, you will see in its eyes your own baby reminding you of what you did.”
