It took me many years to come to terms with my actions, dissect the lies in today’s society and understand that as a willing participant in sentencing my children to death, I now have to do everything in my power to get to heaven so that I can be with them. With the help of the Divine Mercy of Jesus Christ I once again have hope. It’s easier for most of us who have had an abortion to seek unquestionable social acceptance from a society with a strong disregard for life, than to face the fact that for whatever reason, we were instrumental in ending our own child’s existence.
I know it’s hard to accept. But we can make a difference by finding the courage to get up and do something about it. To choose righteousness over instant gratification and to stand up even if we have already fallen. God has forgiven me, and He can forgive you, but you must ask for it with a sincere heart, even though you must take it one day at a time. God is always ready to welcome us back home with open arms. The slowest process is forgiving ourself. However, through our blessed mother Mary's rosary I have not only been able to once again feel forgiveness, but I have been able to receive many graces. I have noticed that the more we do to make amends and help others, the more we become capable of forgiving ourselves. God bless anyone who reads this.
Remember, only God can judge you but it is your responsibility to do what is right. We must feel the need to defend the youngest and weakest within our kind. If we don’t, who will feel compassion for us? Read John Paul II’s Message of Hope after Abortion. It has really helped me.
