I suffered from low-self esteem
I got pregnant while in college. My boyfriend (now husband) was involved and
so was Planned Parenthood.
I was not sure of when my last menstrual period was but they calculated I was
ten weeks. The doctor looked at me when it was over and said I was at least 12
weeks. There was no talk of a baby. I was shocked when I found out a baby was
fully formed at 10 weeks.
The abortion was a regular procedure.
After the abortion, I suffered from depression (on the verge of suicide) For
years I suffered from low-self esteem, low-sexual desire and even an emotional
rejection of my first baby.
To deal with the abortion I joined a support group called Mourning Joy
Ministries and I am going through PACE workbook. I am a Christian and had asked
the Lord's forgiveness. He is healing me.
The abortion has changed me because I was able to confront and confess my
sins. I think a lot of the years that were wasted in grief and depression. Now
it has given me a purpose to see others receive their healing too.
