Did not Connect with their Pain

I was the boyfriend of two different women and over a span of two years had an abortion with each of them. As the father of the aborted baby, I was not in the room where the abortion was performed, but I did go to the clinic with both women and both were devastated after having the abortion.  I gave them obligatory support, but really did not connect with their pain. Only after I allowed Jesus into my life did these suppressed memories come to the surface and only then did I fully realize what I had done.

I publicly confessed and went to confession, but I still feel more healing is necessary.  I'm very sorry for these two beautiful souls I pray for their forgiveness. I'm sure there are others like me and hopefully by my story they will come out of the closet and that's why I am silent no more.
