My abortion

Well i havent relly told any1 this but when i was 18 i fell pregnate with my boyfriend ( he was 30 at the time) of three months. i was so scared when i found out i was pregnate my whole world came crashing down. I was badley addicted to drugs and not in a stable state of mind. i was too scared to tell anyone because i was scared of what they of me silly but true.
i decided to tell my bf and get a test, i was so scared when i was going to tell my bf i thought the worst but he was so suppotive. He wanted to keep the baby and i did but i couldnt!
I could not bring myself to bring a child into a world where i could not provided the best for my child finacialy and physically and mentaly.
I also took copious amounts of drugs ranging from anti deppresants to hallucingens and anti psycotics not knowing i was pregnate.
it took me 2 months to decided on what i was going to do with my baby i wanted to keep him or her soo bad but i wouldnt be able to live with myself if i brought that bubby into my world of messed up stuff.
I contined to take drugs and i ended up really really ill. i was bed ridden for nearly 3 weeks barley touched any food and serverley dehydrated.
i was approximatly 2 and a half months pregnate at the time and i weighed 43kg i should of been in hospital. i organised an appointment for a termintation of pregnacy in early 2009 i went into the clinic at 7am and went an talked to the head nurse about my desion she had the last say weather i could abort or not. i explained my situation and she asked me many of question and so on then it was time to say goodbye to my bf and head in the be preped for surgery, i went and changed into a gown.
i went an had a consultation with the surgon he asked me questions checked my health and had an ultrasould i was 3 months and 5 days pregnate.
He then gave me a few tablets to swallow to soften my cervix and to induce labour i had to wait around 3 hours in a waiting room with other woman i eventually went in for my surgery, the anesthesiologist checked me over and then walked me into the operating room on my way in there i passed the recovery room that had women in it recovering. i got on the table and they covered me up, the anesthesiologist injected the anesthetic and i got asked to count backwards and the next thing i remember was walking up in a chair with a drip in my arm. i felt extreamly ill. there was another girl looking at me when i awoke i later found out that was her third termination..
i went home about an hour later and slept on and off for the next couple of days.
about three weeks after the fact i started greiving for my unborn child it nearly torn my relationship up with my partner and i lost a best friend aswell. (she was pregante to at the time i was two weeks in front and she didt like my choice but supported me but it got to hard in the end.)
I struggled with that day for a good year but i know that was the best and responisble choice i have made for myself and that child it would of been iresponisble of me to bring that baby into a world of heartache and pain and drugs with no chance for a good future. i eventually started to get alot better mentaly and started to get my life together then when i had finally recoverd mentaly i copped a huge blow. I recevied a phone call from the heath department informing me that the anesthesiologist that worked on me had giving several women hepitis and i could of contracted it. my world crumbled with that phone call i could not stop crying and all the pain and suffering from the abortion came flooding back it was a very low point in my life. i went and got a bloodtest and it came back negitive (thank god!) i cant imaging all those poor woman that have contracted it from him. still to this day he has not been charged.. his name is Dr. James Latham Peters. i hope he rots in h***!

  • Sorry to re post this - something happened on the page leaving no spaces and making it hard to read the links.

    I can also verify this poor girls story. So, how about you do a little research before you comment on such a sensitive topic. I didn't realise spelling errors equated to someone being a liar. Just because it didn't appear on the news in the US, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Or were you unaware that there is a world outside of where you live? You have no right to judge anyone for choosing to have an abortion, the same way no one has the right to judge you for having a child (or two) by the time you were 18 years old. I would think that was a difficult time for you and as a result, you would have sympathy for others. In regards to your comment about the US not allowing late term abortions in any state well to put it simply... you're wrong. Of course, the laws in the US vary drastically from state to state and some do in fact have restrictions on late term abortions. This however is not true of all states as many allow late term abortions, some as late as 24 weeks (for those of you who can't count... that's longer than 3 months). Also, it appears you're wrong again (surprise, surprise)... there is a pill to induce "labour". I think I've proved you wrong enough times in the space of a few minutes. Would you like me to proof read this comment or will a few google links be enough for you ignorant f****? I hope you're embarrassed for the way you spoke to this girl.

    The last one is from The Age; a reputable newspaper in Melbourne. I think I've made my point. For the young girl who had to go through all this and then to deal with these people - I hope you're okay and I am glad you tested negative.

  • Thanks for telling your story. I also had an abortion and was treated by James Latham Peters. I can verify all the details you give of your treatment in Australia. Like you (but I am much older, unexpectedly pregnant at 48) I found the reminder of the trauma very very difficult. Please ignore what mean-minded commentators say. I wish you courage and resilience in recovering your life.

  • thankyou so much!!
    It is the one of the hardest things i have every done and i will never forget it for the rest of my life!

    I just wish they would charge him!
    Going through what i went through was hard enough but to get a phone call from the health dept telling me what happened with him.. that killed the most!

    I wish all you ladys the best and as hard as it is stay strong!! Thats the only way to deal with it is to be strong!! its what women do best!!

  • I had an abortion 17 years ago and my soul still hurts. I feel like I killed my own baby and get away without a punishment, well at least in this world.

  • Anonymous, a simple google search would validate this girls story. Google, "James Latham Peters." What this sick man did was infect many Australian women with Hepatitis C. My experience with health services in Australia correlates with the girls account of events. While her story may be disjointed and with spelling errors it may very well reflect her state of mind (and education level). I think she made a good decision for her herself and her unborn baby (which was exposed to high levels of risk through her use of drugs, and potentially had a poor future outlook), and I hoope she sorts herself out and has a family in her future

  • Wow, way to validate your story by making simple basic spelling errors...

  • also it took you two months to decide then you was two months then you was 3 makes no sense couldnt of found out when you was a week?

  • ok heres my problem with this for one if you was pregnant youd know how to spell it second of all something like that would of hit the news third if you didnt wanna to "get pregnant" shouldnt of had unprotected s** with someone you had been with for 3 months and fourth i dont believe a word of your story i think your a little girl with an attention problem im 20 now and i have two kids one at 14 and one at 18 and another thing in any state you have to be uner 3 months in the united states? and two they dont give you a pill to induce labor and three they do not put you to sleep for an abortion i dont know whats wrong with you but you need to get your facts straight before typing something that ignorant

    3 I dont care that i dont know how to spell pregnate thats how i spell it!
    4 YOU SHOULDNT OF HAD UNPROTECTED S**!! Dont prech to me about that miss teenage pregnacy!
    5 There is late term abortion clinics in victoria as well as normal ones h*** you can go to the hospital and get one!
    6 they do knock you out here!
    7 When your over 3 months they give you tablets before surgery and again after to take for a few days it brings on contactions its called cytotec!
    8 i was one month when i took the test, i suspected i was pregnate for a lil while, i got sick at 2 and a half months and got a abortion at 3 months, sorry it was 3 months and 3 days which is 13.3 weeks!
