I somehow got talked into it…
I was 27 years old, single. I was an anti-abortionist, but somehow got talked
into it by my boyfriend and then the clinic.
I was awake for it. I wanted to be able to remember it so I wouldn't be able
to deny it had happened. The doctor did not want me to be awake. He rudely asked
if I wanted to stay awake to punish myself. The nurse was really nice.
Unlike most others, I remained with my boyfriend. Got pregnant again! And had
a baby with him. We got married when our baby was four years old.
As a Christian I have received forgiveness from God. This I know has been
forgiven, but it is still sometimes hard when I see my two children knowing I
could have had another.
I have a complete understanding of the reality of this issue. It is a
blessing that God has used this tragedy for giving me compassion which I am
always short on.
