Abortion Story: Tampa, FL
Submitted to Abort73 by a 51-year-old woman on March 13, 2015.
It takes a lot to share my story. You see, I had two children already. They were in their teens. I was married, and we found ourselves—both of us Christians—in a sinful lifestyle, and I got pregnant. I was panicked. My husband and I had tried for a 3rd child, but it never happened, so I figured we could not have more for whatever reason. I wondered whose it was and how would we explain it to our families if the child looked very different? Before I knew it, I had scheduled the appointment. I went alone. It was like I was in a dream that I could not get out of. There was much more pain than I ever imagined as they sucked that precious, innocent life out of me. Pain I now feel that I deserved for what I did. I left there knowing what I chose to do was so wrong and have regretted it ever since. Not a day goes by that I don't wish I chose life and feel like someone is missing! I know God has forgiven me. One day I will see my child in heaven, but it is hard to forgive myself! We should keep pushing to abolish abortion so women don't have the option at all and lives are saved.
