Abortion Story: Omaha, NE
Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on March 27, 2012.
I will never forgot the day I got an abortion. I was at the lowest point of my life. I had gotten a DUI two weeks before I found out I was pregnant. I had just moved back with my mom and my on-again-off-again boyfriend had no desire to be a parent 'yet.' I was devastated I always claimed to be pro-life and promised myself I would never [have an abortion]. With no savings, no license, living with my mom, and a man who simply had no interest to be a father, I schedule an appointment at an abortion clinic. The first thing they gave me was an ultrasound and the worst got worse. I was pregnant with twins. I remember screams from inside saying, "run, you don't have to do this there are other options." While the internal battle continued, I remembered the voices of so many who said abortion is OK, politicians, the President, my friends, my family, and the man that I thought had loved me. So despite my doubts I went through with the abortion. The abortionist was not discreet with the fetuses (excuse the vulgarity) I saw my lifeless children on a medical tray. I hated and loathed who I had become. A hypocrite, a killer, and most of all another statistic of someone who had received an abortion for "social reasons." There is hope. I found grace and mercy at the Throne of God and have been healed and forgiven. In honor of my babies that are now with Jesus, I will speak out against the "rights of women" and speak out for the rights of [those] who can't yet speak for themselves.
