It Started to Haunt Me
At the time I was a fitness teacher and all of my friends were "feminists" like me. I was angry with myself for becoming pregnant because I had made a contraception mistake. I completely bought into the lie that "it was just a bunch of cells". My boyfriend was on the same page with me and we just wanted to take care of it.
For years afterward I rarely thought about it. In my mid 40's, it started to haunt me. I never did have any children, and deep down I believed I wasn't worthy. I felt empty and in search of comfort. Soon I returned to practicing my faith. I confessed my sin but continued to live with deep regret. Finally, I heard a woman speak about her experience publicly and she helped me find counseling resources.
I want to help people understand that abortion is not a fix. I want women to know that this will haunt them forever. I want those who have experienced this trauma to know that help is available. My action long ago changed the course of my life and took the life of my child. I will never know this person who was meant to be. This loss and the daily loss of thousands of innocent lives is why I am Silent No More!
