From that moment, for 36 years I never spoke a word about what I had done. I lied on every medical form asking how many pregnancies I had. But it was always there. It caused problems with relationships with my children, there was no closeness.
I was just sixteen - I had no good counsel - I felt abortion was my only choice. The experience was horrific, and I still hear the sound of the machine whirring - all these years later. I felt alone and afraid and had no one to comfort or help me - I suffered alone and continued to live a promiscuous, unhappy, unfulfilling life for another 18 years.
Much much later, I began drinking and sleeping around. I even thought Abortion was okay for some people for a while. I have totally changed on that. No Abortion is ever okay for anyone at anytime. I regret my Abortion.
Trying to keep up a “goody two-shoes” image, I did not want my parents to find out that I was having sex outside of marriage and I decided to have an abortion to hide my behavior. My boyfriend came up with some of the money for an abortion and then I lied to my best friend for the rest of the money. Connie's testimony from the 2023 March for Life in Washington D.C.
Not only did I choose death for my child over life, but I stole Fatherhood from someone too. That child was as much his as mine and I gave him no say! Melissa's testimony from the 2023 March for Life in Washington D.C.
I found myself caught in a difficult spot and I thought having an abortion in order to keep my own promise of completing college and the fear of my family being ashamed of me for getting pregnant. Elsa's testimony from the 2023 March for Life in Washington, D.C.
I was a child of 15 when I had my abortion. I was told, "You are a child yourself, how are you going to take care of a baby?" I was young and not strong enough to fight for me and my baby. So I went along with the abortion, although I wanted to keep him. Sharon's testimony from the 2023 March for Life in Washington, D.C.
El aborto NO es una solución, el aborto es un problemaque trae consecuencias lastimosas.
