Abortion Story

Submitted to Abort73 by a -year-old woman on September 28, 2006.


I was someone who fell thru the cracks when I was 20 years old. It has been 15 years since then and I am still trying to heal. I was coerced by family to have an abortion. I was young and had no clue what I really was getting myself into. I just knew I couldn't fight anymore. I tried so hard to keep the baby... but lost. Everywhere I went, everyone kept telling me about abortion and not ONE person ever reached out and told me what abortion was or that they would show me HOW to keep my child or give it up for adoption. I suffered for 13 years until I finally reached out for help. I drank constantly to stuff my emotions and pain back down. I numbed myself with drugs. I couldn't envision that day ever again.. it was too painful. It wasn't until I joined a post-abortion group and a pro-life group that I truly began to slowly heal. I named the baby and basically had to go thru the grieving process, like I had actually lost a child that was born to me. I have forgiven myself, by the grace of God... He has given me my strength. I have helped many girls so far deal with their issues and actually saved one girl from having [an abortion]... she now has a beautiful baby boy and has thanked me over and over again for befriending her when no one else would talk to her.
