He told me he would leave me

I had been married for 3 years, but my husband was in college and didn't want to start a family yet. Even though I was working and felt we could handle a baby, he told me he would leave me if I didn't have an abortion.

I flew to New York in 1973 and Planned Parenthood took care of all the arrangements. But I felt like cattle once I got there. The abortion did not hurt (I had a local). I stayed for 2 hours and then was taken back to the airport. My husband went with me!

At first I felt a relief, but as time went by I felt guilt and our marriage disintegrated.. We moved to another state hoping that would help, but a few years later ended up getting a divorce. It sure did affect me and others! I have since had a miscarriage also.

I came to know Jesus Christ and his forgiveness and to me that was the only way to deal with my guilt. I now work with women to help them have their babies or release them for adoption. I fight abortion anyway I know how, now!

I had always been a "good girl" and to me the abortion changed the way I felt about myself and my husband. I now know that it was not the answer and I believe that if I wouldn't have had it I still would have been married.
