Abortion Story: USA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 49-year-old woman on December 15, 2014.
I want our baby back. The year was 1999; I was 34 years old and married. I don't remember much of anything. All I do remember is letting an older, nameless woman take my baby from me—and not even telling my husband. It went quickly—no complications. I felt like my heart was as hard as stone that day. It stayed that way for a long, long time. I remember the look of bewilderment and horror on my husband’s face and in his voice when I told him what I had done. There was no use of the word “baby” or details about the abortion in our short conversation. I am not sure how I conveyed the information. That was the only time I ever spoke of it with him, and I have not spoken to him about it since. I have tried to keep it all blocked out of my mind. I am desperate to be forgiven, but I know I don't deserve it. All I can tell you at this point is I weep many tears of sorrow when I think of our baby being ripped from my body and laid aside—nameless. Nobody was there to say a prayer or think about how precious and worthy they were—while they were thrown out like a piece of trash. I am so sorry, so very sorry. I hope I am forgiven someday. I would give my life for that child.
