Abortion Poem

I'm 15, and my friend is getting an abortion.

Why Don't You Love Me?

© Sarah Cote
mommy, mommy, don't let me go.
I wanna see the world
and know everything you know.
I wanna see the world
the way it is today.
I wanna see the world
before it goes away.
one day, I may very well cure a disease.
please don't keep, this dream from me.
I want a chance to breath the air.
I want a chance, now mommy, this isn't fair.
I want to feel love, sadness, and hate.
I want my own name, life, and fate.
I don't ask for much, just to survive.
I want to open my eyes, and know I'm alive.
I want to change the future to make a better place.
I wanna be able to see your beautiful face.
wake up each morning and live another day.
and someday dig the hole of my grave.
so mommy, you hold my life in you hands.
if you drop me now I will understand.
forget about the guilt weighing you down.
mommy, please take my body, and lay it in the ground.
cause I am yours, and forever will be.
just tell me mommy,
why don't you love me?

    I'm 17, I was 16 when I got pregnant with my twins<, me and my boyfriend were just going out driving around and he went and parked in a corn field miles from our houses. I wasn't sure at first what we were doing but I thought why not we had been dating for 2 years and we haven't had sex yet so we decided that we would break that streak and we tipped the seat back and we began but before I even knew what we were doing we were done. just like that it had happened. 3 weeks had passed before I realized that I hadn't got my period so I was getting worried and I said to my boyfriend that I think that we might be pregnant he was shocked when I told him so we went and bought a couple tests and they all turned out positive. a month had passed and we still hadn't told our parents so when we did they automatically told us that I had to get a abortion I was heartbroken. Know we both are 17 and we honestly regret aborting our twins we had names pick out for a girl it was Julikka Vera and for the boy it was Dayne Jacob. We miss our babies but in the end I do regret aborting our twins.

    I found out I was pregnant on 7/23/13. I have a baby girl that is just 1 year old & my marriage wasn't going great so I decided to have an abortion behind my husband back. After reading this poem "mommy why don't you love me" I couldn't forgive myself so I'm, keeping my baby & my husband is the happiest man knowing he will be a daddy again ;)

    I am 13 and my mother always tells that I should've been aborted. I don't know why she says that but she said it was better if I didn't live, it could stop all the pain. If I wasn't here, then my friend could've died from being hit in car accident if I hadn't pulled her.
