Abortion Story: Toronto, ON
Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on November 12, 2013.
On this day, November 11, two years ago in 2011, I aborted my lovely son. I have already written my story on April 21, 2013. I come back on this site often to find comfort when I’m grieving over the death of my child. Coming on this site allows me to feel as though I am not alone. My boyfriend begged me to abort, and my sister convinced me it was the best thing to do. My boyfriend had been cheating on me for 5 years with a woman who had multiple abortions for him. She finally got pregnant last October. When I was pregnant, he begged me to abort it. When she was pregnant, he supported her saying things like, “Oh no, you shouldn’t kill it…” When I was pregnant, I let him know if I killed my child I’d be doing it for him, not for myself… Strangely, when I said this, he got upset. I killed my child for him and lost him to her. Now this time, she didn't abort her child, and now he has a son with her. And my son IS DEAD. Plus, I haven't been able to conceive ever since. Since my last posting, I have found peace and forgiveness. At this point, I just want to go to heaven and be with my child, so I try to stay as humble as I can. Women are not informed about the mental and emotional toll an abortion can have on a person. There are so many resources in the world that will allow you to take care of your child and allow it to live. PLEASE choose life, not death for your child. I had twins at 16 and dealing with an abortion is harder than dealing with two children. If you have any doubt in your mind about aborting DO NOT DO IT. YOU WILL REGRET IT!
Someone responded to my story and told me to name my son, for heaven rejoices when a child is named. So I named Him Jirus.
I can’t believe its been two years since I let you die such a vulgar death. Jirus, I miss you so much. Words cannot describe the pain I feel every day. You were my one and only son, and I let the devil devour my soul and allowed your beautiful spirit to no longer be with me. Two days before your sisters’ birthday, I took you out of this world. It’s a disgrace and I’m sorry. I hope my constant thoughts of you will help me do what God has put me here to do, especially in remembrance of you. I love you, Jirus. Watch over mommy and your big sisters.
