I am the father of an aborted child who would have been 28 years old this year. My girlfriend and I became pregnant and were frightened. We bought into the lie that our future and our plans and careers would be ruined. I took off from work that day and drove her to the clinic and held her hand as our child was killed.
We separated shortly afterward and I went on to college, marrying and pursued a career in medicine. But I was plagued with depression and anxiety and divorced after a suicide attempt and descended into the hopelessness of drug and alcohol addiction. It was in the twelve step recovery programs that I looked at the past and my part in it and by Gods healing grace was called into the Catholic Church where I was able to confess and receive the healing sacrament of reconciliation.
The Lie which is abortion is a cancer! A poison which erodes women and men from the soul out and is eroding our society. I will be silent no more!!!!!
