The reason why I had an abortion was because I was scared and selfish. I didn’t want to admit that at first and kept on justifying the reasons why I had to do it. I only thought of myself and what—I thought—a relief it would be.
The truth was that I felt horrible afterwards. I couldn’t stop the regret and remorse, the pain that I felt. It is a pain that won’t go away. It feels like a lifetime of hurt, and I don’t want to have anyone go through that.
I am still on my path to healing. I used to go through it by myself, but I have turned to God and asked Him to help me, and that is why I am silent no more.
