Abortion Story: Ohio
Submitted to Abort73 by a 29-year-old woman on August 5, 2012.
I was 16 when I had my abortion. That was 13 years ago, and I still struggle with the decision to do it. I had only been dating my boyfriend for 3 months and he and my mom agreed that I should get an abortion. I wanted to have the baby, but my mom said she would kick me out of the house, and with my boyfriend not wanting the baby either, I did it. The moment it happened I regretted it. I struggled for years and still do, but I know that even though I killed my child, Jesus has forgiven me. I know that I will meet my child when I die, and that gives me some comfort. Satan likes to try to make me still feel guilty, and it is very hard to not give in to that. I have a 2 year old son now, and I love watching him grow up. I was given a second chance to be a mother, and I am so thankful for that. A life is precious, and abortion is not the way. There are so many people out there that want to have children.
