The doctors and nurses have no emotion
I made my decision to have the abortion because the father was unwilling to
marry me. I was afraid to raise a child by myself and hurt because I
loved this person very much and he had deserted me.
I would describe the abortion as very cruel and cold. The doctors and nurses
have no emotion and are there to do a good job. I decided not to have the
abortion on the table and the doctor said if I didn't cooperate he would knock
me out and do it at the hospital.
My abortion deeply hurt because I had taken a grandchild without even talking
to my parents. My abortion has affected me greatly. I had a hard time trusting
men. I became depressed and anxious, having to go on medication twice in five
At first I buried the abortion deep inside and then decided to go for
counseling. Unfortunately, my counselor did more harm than good. I am now in a
RAMAH bible study group and that is helping. I finally am dealing with all of
the guilt and pain.
I have had a hard time getting close to people and I often fear that I will
never be able to have children. I have been depressed and anxious but now the
Lord is in my life. I am moving on and I hope to help more people understand the
lifelong consequences of abortion.
