Abortion Story: OKC, OK
Submitted to Abort73 by a 59-year-old woman on September 17, 2016.
In my early 20's, I married a military man who was about to be deployed overseas. I became pregnant; I had not heard much about abortion. My husband insisted on an abortion because it wasn't the right time to have a baby. He found a clinic; I didn’t know much about them. He drove to the front door and told me to go in and tell them what I wanted. He wouldn't stay. He said he would be back later. I cried and screamed during the whole procedure. We divorced after one year. About three years later, I found myself single and pregnant. I was at work and had a few cramps. My boss sent me to a doctor. This doctor said he noticed I was single and pointed out how difficult it would be for me with a child. He suggested to let him abort it. That was abortion #2. A couple years later, in my early 30’s, I got pregnant again. I had a boyfriend this time. He told me to have an abortion or he would disappear. I told him “bye.” Nine months later, I had a beautiful baby girl. Two years later, working in a hospital, I got pregnant by a married doctor who had told me he was single. He got angry and said, “Abortion or else.” That was abortion #3. My little girl turned four. I met a man who I married. In my late 30’s, we had a wonderful baby boy. Both my children are grown now. I have never told anyone this story, until now. The Bible says God will forgive you. But I will never forgive myself. I think of them every day and sometimes count how old those babies would be. I've been diagnosed with mental problems. Go figure! I am against all abortions. I'm almost 60 years old. For you girls who are thinking about choosing abortion, read my post. It HAUNTS you all of your life.
