I wish it would have been harder to get…
I had a prolapsed uterus and was in the hospital to have it removed when the
Doctor discovered I was pregnant with my 7th child in 10 years. I was
so upset he sent me to an abortionist at a hospital.
I don't remember the abortion because it happened during the operation to
remove my uterus.
Only my husband and my mother knew about it. We didn't tell our 6 children.
My mother bugged me not to but I didn't listen. It gave me a deep sense of shame
a few years afterwards when I really realized what I had done. It was done for a
very selfish reason. I didn't think we could afford another child. What a
mistake. My husband and I think about our child often.
I've prayed for forgiveness. I've tried to instill in my children a deep
respect for life. I give what money I can to Pro-Life causes.
It made me realize that life is precious. I would have had the child and
loved it. I wish the abortion would have been harder to get, then maybe I
wouldn't have had it. It happened 19 years ago in Norfolk, VA. I went back there
last year after being away for 17 years. It still made me very sad and depressed
to be where it happened.
