Post-abortion woman: “I feel bad about killing it”

Dawn, 17, who regrets her abortion:

“I’ve even cried some nights, because I really feel bad about killing it. Just killing something like a baby, that really bothers me, but I try not to let it…It’ll never be alright to me. I don’t care if it was just a week [along in the pregnancy]. It’s both our faults. We didn’t want to have a child.”
