Abortion Story: Indiana

Submitted to Abort73 by a 47-year-old woman on May 22, 2012


Thirty years of torment. I had an abortion two months before turning 17. My mother, the preacher's wife (my father died when I was 11), called the abortion center and put me on the phone. I tried to get out of it at the abortion center but they had my mom come in and talk to me because I kept crying. I felt like I didn't have a choice. I always wished that I had been stronger and had slipped out the back door. I remember there was one man with a picket sign in front of the building. I remember how he had stopped and looked at me and I always think if he had said something I may have turned around. I needed someone to help me out of this. This has affected everything in my life. I've been married several times, I've had no self worth, I believe I could have been a better mother to my children if I wasn't dealing with so much on the inside. I've finally stopped ignoring that it happened. I've been able to accept God's forgiveness and with the help of my husband, I'm healing. There's no way to go back and change things and living with this is truly torture.
