I was faced with an unexpected pregnancy, I didn't want to have an abortion, but I was so scared, and confused, my boyfriend the baby’s father forced me to go through the abortion. So he took me to the clinic, when I was there on the table, I was so scared, and so alone, I was two months pregnant, the nurse told me to just relax, that it'll be over soon, I felt so much pain, and cramping.
I remember being so cold and isolated, when it was over, I was laying in the back seat of my boyfriend’s car in so much pain, all I could do was just lay there and cry in pain, and in shame.
The next few days, I really felt alone, and depressed. I tried to call my boyfriend but he just abandoned me, so then I really wanted to commit suicide. I tried to take an over dose of pills, but I wasn't successful, but for about 5 to 10 years after going through trying to forget my abortion by drinking, and drugs everyday, until I came to the realization of having to deal with getting help and healing.
So I first went to a priest, to hear my confession. I was back to church and started seeking counseling, I became active in the pro-life work, and I'm still very active and always will be active. I found healing through confession and being active in the pro-life work.
