Abortion Story: USA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 42-year-old woman on April 16, 2012


I have had 4 abortions. The first 2 were strongly encouraged by my parents. I was young and so uneducated and naive. My parents wanted this, and I still thought that my parents knew everything at that age. I didn't see anything wrong with doing it because they thought it was OK. I have always worked at getting their approval so it felt right to do what they asked. The last two were of my own doing and due to different situations. Am I ashamed? YES. Do I regret it? YES. I am older now, and I understand completely what happens during an abortion. If you are reading this and considering aborting your baby - yes, it is a baby (not just cells) - know this .... THERE WILL BE A DAY THAT THE REALITY OF WHAT YOU DID WILL SINK IN!!! THE REGRET AND PAIN WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ESCAPE THE DEEP SORROW YOU FEEL!!!

What ever you are going through right now does not even begin to compare to what you will go through in the future. My reasons for having mine were powerful, and the situations for the last two were overwhelming. I felt I had no choice at the time - I really did. The last one was due to health issues that were dangerous (but that) doesn't matter, I still cannot forgive myself. Save yourself, save your baby - find someone to help you through this very trying time. There are so many people willing and able to help you. Just about every church has a program to help those in need. Please just stop and look around you for help.
