Teenager has abortion due to incest, regrets it

Dallas Rushing was a victim of incest whose father impregnated her.

At 17, she went to live with her father and started having sex with him. He was abusive, but she was convinced she loved him. After she became pregnant, she wanted to have her baby, but he wanted her to have an abortion. She left him for good when she was 14 weeks pregnant after a bad beating. But she decided to get an abortion.

Rushing writes:

“I sat there holding my stomach. I was hoping I would feel a kick, and at one point I imagined I did. By the time I got in the Operating room, I was freezing and my legs wouldn’t stop shaking because I was shivering so much. The doctor told me to put my feet in the stirrups, but when my legs wouldn’t stop shaking, the doctor got mad at me. She rudely told me to stop shaking. At the same time, the nurses were pumping a medicine into my arm and I quickly fell unconscious…

I got up and walked out without my child, and I was fine. I didn’t think about what I had just done — I couldn’t think about it.

Two weeks went by and that’s when I started feeling the loss. I cried a lot … I just made the worst mistake of my life. I ended my baby’s life. My own child. My life felt like a living hell at that point. My heart was hurting so bad that I wished I would have died there with my child. I couldn’t go to work without drinking first.

Still to this day I cry and deeply mourn the loss of my child. Nothing has hurt me more than knowing that I killed my baby. I was supposed to be there to protect him. I wanted him in my life so much but I was a coward and took the easy way out. I can’t stand myself for the decision I made.

That is why I wrote this article. If you are pregnant because of rape or incest and you are lost, then please take this story to heart. You never know what you will miss, or how you will feel afterwards…. I am simply trying to save mothers and their babies.”
