I have a daughter who would be 50 years old 

I was devastated after a broken engagement in early 1945 (WWII). I became involved with a married man and another man, which resulted in my pregnancy. My girlfriend and my parents helped me with the abortion.

Were you given adequate information and counseling prior to the abortion(s)?

No, nothing available in 1945. Just fear ignorance, disgrace and shame.

How would you describe the abortion(s)?

Horrible! It is a miracle that I didn't die.

How did your abortion(s) affect you and others?

Terribly! Ruined my life and made me feel completely unworthy.

I have dealt with the abortion by praying. I have cried and now say I have a daughter who would be 50 years old if she had lived. I've named her "Angela my angel" and I pray to her.

The abortion made me feel unworthy and I've felt I had to atone for it all my life. I miss my daughter and need her so much because I am completely alone. I am not sure because I am 72 years old now and I am trying to find peace. I have to let go and let God take over. I do not want to relive all the suffering and pain. I have to get on with the healing. I am old, tired and in pain. I have to get ready to meet my maker in peace. My fiancée of WWII has been relocated after 50 years. Should I tell him what I been through these years?
