They discovered half of the fetus left in me
I was unmarried. I had just joined the Navy and I felt no other
"choice". I went to a clinic and it was performed.
[The abortion was] very violent! Painful both physically and mentally. The
worst experience of my life! I bled for 6 weeks after. They discovered half of
the fetus left in me! Caused terrible infection, I almost died!!
For weeks I was so depressed I almost took my own life, I felt so guilty of
what I’d done. No one else really knew or cared.
For years (I had [the abortion] ten years ago) I lived in a state of guilt
until I became a Christian and confessed it to God. He helped me to heal.
I then got involved in Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and the Pro-Life Movement.
Helping others has helped me.
How has the abortion affected me? Well, where do I start? I had a crash
course in adulthood. I did a lot of growing up. I came to realize how one
decision can affect you for the rest of your life!
