I suppressed it all
The man I was with was doing drugs. I was a single mother of a 2 1/2
year old and 10 month old. A friend took me to the clinic and a different friend
made the appointment. The father hasn't spoken to me since.
The abortion was painful, unemotional and scary.
The first two years virtually there was no effect -- I suppressed it all.
After the deep depression, the realization that I took my baby's life hit hard.
The father has a deep hatred for me.
To deal with the abortion I have gone to the crisis pregnancy center in my
county. I have read several post-abortion articles and read a post-abortion
trauma book. I have received forgiveness and forgiven myself recently.
The abortion has changed my life because I stand even more strongly against
it because I have been there! I remember my lost baby if not daily, at least 2
or 3 times a week. I know he has forgiven me and is waiting for me to come home
