I Aborted for my Husband…

[I came to have an abortion] because the Supreme Court legalized abortion, and when I became pregnant one month after marriage, my husband pressured me for an abortion because he did not mean for us to be pregnant yet. I argued for about 3 weeks, but as a new bride and thinking I should submit to him, I agreed for him . . . .

Emotionally, physically and spiritually draining. Secretive. We drove miles to the clinic in the A.M. and home that evening. I laid in the back of the station wagon bleeding all the way back.

It took months for me to forgive myself. My husband was not sorry for doing it (except years later for a short time and then later he changed his position back to saying it was just another form of birth control). The abortion - and other things - put a wedge between us. He would not let me cry about it when we left the clinic that day. It was not until 7 years later I allowed myself to grieve the loss of that sweet child.

I knew within weeks/months afterwards that God knew my heart and forgave me. We were blessed with 3 children after that. My husband asked me to abort the 1st and 3rd of these children too, but I did not submit these times.

I was a Christian, married to a supposedly Christian man and was hurt deeply to be asked to abort my first child. So undeservingly, God blessed me/us with 3 other children - all the more precious to me. After 10 years of marriage, my husband and I are divorced. God's grace in Jesus is sufficient.
