Abortion Story: USA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 48-year-old woman on March 12, 2011.
I am now 48 years old. In my early 20's I had 3 abortions. These abortions left me in turmoil. It affected every area of my life. The truth came to light that I had actually taken the lives of my unborn children. I was not a Christian and promised God I would never have another abortion. On a one night stand I got pregnant. I had my daughter and she is now 19 years old. She has been a true gift from God. I thought God could never forgive me. But the Dear Lord orchestrated events that lead my daughter to a Christian Mother's Day Out program. She sent a prayer request for me to know Jesus. Well my life turned upside down and I received Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. He forgave all of my sins including the Sins of abortion. That is why he came to pay the penalty for our sins. He showed me that my children were with him and now I know I will see them again, because I will be with my Lord now. The Lord was not finished with me. He then had me go through a post abortion healing Bible study called Surrendering the Secret. It opened my eyes to dealing with truth, allowing me to have a safe place to open up and get truthful, and to receive hope and a great spiritual and emotional healing. I am so thankful for this Bible study and now teach it myself to other women who have suffered with the trauma of abortion. And I can tell you when you come to the Cross of Jesus and receive His forgiveness and go through a healing Bible study–many out there, you will see the Lord will give you hope in what looks hopeless to you. Women please don't believe the lie that abortion is quick and easy and will be over and done. It ends life and will forever change yours in horrible ways you never dreamed of.
