I felt I had no other choice. There was never any
question to me whether or not to abort. Only me and the father were
I was not aware of what I was really doing. I was very ignorant about
development of a child and the procedures of abortion. It was a time I
completely went numb!
I was very independent and hard toward others after the abortion. I had no
emotions, I denied everything for about a year. I was very selfish and
insensitive to others. I became very angry, lonely (a feeling of loss).
I had personal counseling - because abortion for me was the result of
insecurities starting at childhood. (It wasn't just a last minute decision.) I
have now also completed a 12-week post abortion support group.
It made me very aware of abortion itself. I became much more sensitive to
people. Not afraid to have emotions - it has really given me a burden for
teenagers and the pressure they deal with. Also it made me aware of how many
hurting women are in this world and how many just want to be loved!! And
abortion is not the simple solution to a problem!
