Depressed and confused
I found out I was pregnant at age 18. After a series of negative pregnancy
tests, I went to an ob/gyn who confirmed my pregnancy and gave me the advice to
abort. My parents and boyfriend also encouraged the same thing.
Do you believe you were adequately informed about the nature of abortion,
the risks, and alternatives?
Not at all.
Horrifying humiliating, avoidable if I'd been given the right information.
I broke up with my boyfriend. I became alienated from my parents. I became
depressed and confused.
I've participated in Christian counseling and attended a bible study for
post abortive women. It has taken many years for healing to occur.
I have spent many years in recovery from this experience.
