Abortion Story: Longmont, CO

Submitted to Abort73 by a 57-year-old man on April 14, 2011


When my girlfriend became pregnant (who is not my wife now) shortly after Roe v. Wade, I was such a coward that I actually talked the girl's dad into paying for the abortion. What a low-life I was! Even though I was so selfish as to want to kill my own child, and tried to tell myself it was no big deal, when I think back, I remember that, in my heart, I knew it was wrong. As is the case many times, my girlfriend and I broke up shortly after that. We haven't been in contact since. So I pushed it deep down into my soul for many, many years until one Sunday in the mid 1990s when I was attending church, they played a pro-life video for the congregation. That is the first time I sobbed over what I had done. I've been strongly pro-life ever since, and now my wife (who is also post-abortive from a previous marriage) and I go to the Planned Parenthood in Denver ever Saturday morning to desperately try to talk moms and dads out of making the same devastating mistake we both have made in our lives. Our most fervent prayer is for many more Christians to join us in speaking for those who can't speak for themselves.
