Something I tried desperately to stuff away
I got pregnant when I was 17. I was confused, scared, and went to my friends for
counsel and they convinced me that it was the best thing to do since the father
was unreliable and a heavy drinker.
No, I wasn’t told that this was a baby; just a problem, although I knew it
was a baby I listened to those who don’t refer to it that way.
How would you describe your abortion(s)?
Traumatic; very painful; not only physically, but emotionally and mentally as
well. Something I tried desperately to stuff away and not think about.
It nearly destroyed my life to those around me. I became extremely depressed
and I even became anorexic for a while.
I finally confessed it to God for what it was (sin) and He began healing me
through prayer and His word and the support of some good friends. I also took an
excellent Bible Study that helped immensely.
It caused me to go through and I continue to go through some tough things
that are effects of my abortion on my life and the lives of some people around
