Woman Defends Aborting Her Baby: “I Didn’t Want to be a Mother, I Still Don’t”

Danielle Fersey begins her abortion story by describing it as “the most painful thing I’ve ever been through,” but she also says it was “the right choice.”

The British woman recently wrote about her abortion experience for The Tab. She was just 22 years old when she discovered she was six-weeks pregnant. She did not have a steady job and struggled financially.

The young woman described feeling a variety of emotions after three pregnancy tests all confirmed that she was pregnant – from disbelief and fear to interest in her unborn child’s life. She said she had visions of what her unborn child would look like, and she thought about parenting; but she chose abortion instead.

“But more than anything, I didn’t want to be a mother. And I still don’t,” she wrote about her decision.

She quickly made an appointment with the British Pregnancy Advisory Services abortion chain, a process that she said was “surprisingly easy.” At the abortion facility, she said the staff were compassionate and friendly. The waiting room, however, was “painfully silent” as women and girls tried to avoid eye contact and conversations. The abortion itself was not a terrible experience, Fersey said. She made two trips to the abortion facility, took some pills and went home.

The worst part came afterward. She continued:

But the pain that came afterwards was the worst thing I’ve ever felt in my life. I couldn’t even move, it was like taking on the period pains of 100 women combined. There was so much blood that I’d have to change my sanitary towel every hour. Overnight, my sheets were covered in blood beyond repair. But I rode it out, and with the medication I was given I was able to get back to work the next day. The heavy pain subsided, and I was just left with some discomfort, cramps and throbbing.

Although it was painful, I know I made the right choice. Abortion isn’t spoken about enough, which I think makes it so much more daunting than it needs to be. The thing I found the scariest about my abortion was the uncertainty, and I think it should be something women, and men, are more informed about.

Fersey’s story fits in with a current pro-abortion tactic to try to normalize abortion through storytelling. However, like her, many of the women have not been able to avoid admitting that they suffered because of their “choice” to abort their unborn child. Their stories have been revealing that an abortion is not merely a good, empowering medical procedure that abortion activists try to claim. While these stories often avoid mentioning the unborn baby whose life is destroyed, they frequently reveal how often women hurt as a result of an abortion.

Abortion activists are desperately trying to convince the public that killing an unborn child is normal and necessary for women to succeed, but they have not been able to explain why something so painful and life-destroying is a good thing for women.
