Abortion Story: Colorado
Submitted to Abort73 by a 36-year-old man on May 19, 2021.
My wife and I had been married for 9 years. I am in the military and for the first five years of our marriage I had been training or deployed for more than half of those years. So, naturally, our marriage went through a rough patch. I had no idea how unstable our marriage was—at least, not until my wife sat me down in the 9th year of our marriage to tell me she had aborted our child early in our relationship.
I had no idea I could weep that much for someone I never knew.
And, with the tears, came the questions: How could she keep this from me? Who does she think I am/was? Was I that horrible of a person, with no potential for fatherhood?
The abortion ruptured our relationship but also the view of my past self. It took a lot of counseling, communication, and crying out to God to restore our relationship; but we will never know our child this side of heaven.
