Abortion Story: New York
Submitted to Abort73 by a 43-year-old woman on January 20, 2012.
At the hands of my mother, I was forced to abort my child at 17 years old. I was never given the option to choose for myself if becoming a mother was right for me. The subsequent results were promiscuity followed by additional abortions, guilt, self hatred, etc. I am a mother now with wonderful children. It has not been easy, but I am so relieved to have had them. Through Christ, I was able to see that my other children are waiting for me in heaven (Psalm 139) and I am allowing God to heal me so that I may get there to be reunited. I love them and I am sorry for choosing sinful behavior in the past over being responsible. I pray for those that have experienced this pain, as it hurts deep and long. Abortion is a lie of convenience. I have had to forgive my mother and myself for my children's lives. Christ is a healer and I am no longer condemned, but redeemed and hopeful of His return to see my babies. In the meantime, I trust God to help me raise my two living children and know that I have shared with them the pain of making difficult choices and working your way out of the decision and the results. I pray they hold onto the lessons and to Christ to keep them chaste and aligned with Christ's command for Holiness and a body that is a living sacrifice. I pray for anyone reading this, that they will find their way to healing through Christ and embrace a relationship with Him to ensure either prevention of the painful effects, or reconciliation to Him and your child(ren).
