Two years ago, I went to confession at Mother Angelica's. The priest asked me if I had ever used hormonal birth control. I said, "Yes, in the first two years of my marriage." He told me that I may have had unintended abortions. I was shocked! I was devastated. I had been the president of LSU Students for Life. How did I miss this? My OB-GYN was Catholic. I had the okay from our priests. Had I turned my brain off? I fell into a deep depression. I went to confession multiple times. Finally a priest explained to me that I was not accepting God's mercy, and that was actually a sin. I pray for the grace to accept God's mercy.
I love my babies and beg them to forgive me for murdering them.
I have found help and forgiveness through the Sacrament of Confession, attending daily Mass as often as possible, daily praying the Rosary, and through the Chapel of Divine Mercy. Through my work with my parish’s Respect Life program, our Louisiana March for Life, and praying at our local abortion mill, I feel that I can help others as well as find healing for myself.
My way of being Silent No More is to try to reach as many people as I can with the message of truth. Hormonal birth control causes abortions. Do not buy into the lie! Instead of being “responsible,” it was the worst choice of my entire life.
