It is a dangerous, destructive procedure
My husband and I had been married two years. I became pregnant while I was on
the pill. We could not afford the baby (so we thought) so I had an abortion.
It was a painful, horrible experience. My insides felt like they were being
ripped out. I screamed, as much as the doctor would let me – not much. I really
I withdrew from my husband and family. I hated myself for what I had done.
Before I came to Christ, I had become so angry and bitter – I was miserable. My
husband didn’t know what to do. We had a lot of problems for a long time.
I have become a Christian and I feel I have been forgiven and can forgive
myself. I am also working for a crisis pregnancy center, trying to help others
to avoid my mistake.
At first, it made me a very sad, bitter person. Now, I think it has made me
realize that I can’t just "sit on the fence" anymore. I have to take a stand and
try to get abortion outlawed. It is a dangerous, destructive procedure.
