I hope nothing's wrong. Jack and I went to see "the Accused" with Jody Foster. Pretty scary stuff— we left before the ending. July 1st: Still late. Not much to do at work today, talked to Melissa, she said not to worry about it, worrying will only make things worse. July 2nd: Went to church with Mom and Dad. Had dinner with the whole family and Jack. July 7th: Haven't started yet, I'm getting worried. I told Jack, he didn't say much but not to worry, July 10th: Missed work today, I didn't feel well. Jack said he'd get us an E.P.T.; he's not too upset, he still says I'm not pregnant. Mom will kill me if I am. July 11th: Did the test. It came out positive so we did it twice. Both times it said I was. It sure wasn't like the commercials. It really hasn't set in yet with me or Jack. I think we both wanted to cry but didn't want the other to know how bad we felt. All I can think of is I am ruined! How can I tell my mom and dad? They'll absolutly kill me, I'm sure of it. I certainly don't want to marry Jack — at least not yet, I'm only 20 and have two more years left in school. What am I going to do? It doesn't seem possible that I am a mom. July 12th: Jack said he'd make the appointment at a clinic. I threw up most of the A.M. and afternoon. I had to miss work. I don't know if it's because I am pregnant or the idea just makes me sick. July 14th: We went to the clinic in Houston. Our appointment was for 2:00 p.m. I think every other person was scheduled for the same time. There were two girls who looked like they were in high school, I couldn't figure out which one going to have it done. There was also a mom and what looked like her daughter and another lady who looked about 45 with her husband. I didn't feel like I belonged there with those people. I'm glad Jack was with me or I'd have chickened out. When they called my name I gave them the forms and they took me into a room to "counsel" me. Basically what it came down to was that I couldn't sue them and I couldn't get $50 back if I changed my mind. I swallowed the pills and could barely keep them down. The medicine worked fast. I was flying in no time. Jack told me. I went into a little examining room. It was decorated real cute. They did an ultra sound and said I was seven weeks pregnant. SEVEN weeks!?! I couldn't believe it! Then they took me to another room with an examining table. I got up on it and did what the nurse said. She said it would only feel like really bad menstrual cramps. I waited for what seemed an eternity. I was shaking, I was terrified. No one was there to hold my hand through that long wait. The doctor came in and examined me. He said I looked as though I had already started miscarrying. I wonder if they tell everyone that to make them feel better. He turned on a machine that sounded like a vaccum cleaner. Then he started. It hurt me, I can't imagine what it felt like to that tiny being. When it was done they sat me in a reclining chair. Jack said I slept for about an hour and a half. We went to a friends's house to sleep off the medicine they gave me. Then we went to my house to eat spaghetti with my mom and dad. July 15th: I feel better today because the drugs finally wore off and I am not throwing up anymore. I went back to work today like nothing had happened. February 1989:1 only wish I didn't have to do what I did just to protect my reputation with my family, friends and society, Believe me it wasn't worth it. I thought it would just go away, but it hasn't. I will always wonder if it was a boy or a girl, if it had my hair or eyes, if it would have gone to college or played sports or what it would have done with its life. ► -Anonymous Student at UH — Abortion ■ 309
