I got pregnant 43 years ago. My boyfriend didn’t want to be a father. I was left to myself to decide what to do. I had morning sickness. I was scared. I thought about going to a home for unwed mothers. My boyfriend made it clear that he didn’t want a baby. I called Women’s Health Services and scheduled an appointment. I was told what to wear, and how much it would cost. I was told payment had to be a cashiers check. My boyfriend went to the clinic with me. Many young women like me were sitting in the waiting room. Nobody spoke a word. The medical staff were so cold and unfeeling. Counseling consisted of getting on contraceptive pills. Then it came time for my abortion. I was scared to death. I had a suction abortion. The pain was excruciating. Went to the recovery room. The other women and I just sat there. I became suicidally depressed, and I cried and cried because I killed my baby. I wanted to die. I decided not to tell anybody what I did. I developed a eating disorder. I hated myself. I would sit on my bed and rock because the emotional pain was unbearable. As time went on, I got married and had children. It took seventeen years before I found forgiveness for killing my baby with my Lord and my God. I have never recommend abortion to anyone. If there’s any young girl or woman that is contemplating abortion, do not make the same terrible mistake I did.
