Abortion Story: Kentucky
Submitted to Abort73 by a -year-old woman on November 30, 2011.
As a young woman I had an abortion. I was 21. I woke up crying after the procedure, and shortly thereafter became so ill, I thought I was going to die. It did make me seek the Lord. As a child, I had accepted the Lord in my life, [but] was not actively serving Him. As I sought the Lord, he sent me some wonderful (real) Christians who didn't judge me. They nurtured me, counseled me and my little family, but most most of all loved me. Even though I have repented and the Lord is with me, it took me over 10 years to forgive myself and even now as I tell you about it, the tears still flow. Several years later my precious daughter became pregnant at 16, and her father wanted her to have an abortion. I told him there was no way she was going to have an abortion. He brought it up to me that I had one. I told him that is exactly why she is not having one. As a result, my precious grandson is here today. Thank you, Lord. This is my first public acknowledgement. If it just helps one person, like it did for my daughter, or saves one child's life, it is worth making it public. I believe that most women are duped. We bought the lie(s). We were uninformed, under-informed, or misinformed about the serious risks involved with “the procedure.” Or we were forced, coerced, or tricked by people who professed to love us.
