The quick-fix didnt work for me
My husband and I were heavily involved with drugs, he convinced me to get an abortion. I was of the feeling (although I knew better) that this wasnt really a baby. It was a "mass of tissue" I was getting rid of.
I was lucky that the clinic I went to was clean. I was not given any "counseling". I was not told how well developed my baby was. I lied to the abortionist about how far along I was, so he would do a suction abortion on me.
My marriage ended in divorce. I grieved for a long time when I faced what I had really done. I am now happily married, no longer involved with drugs, and am very involved in the Pro-Life Movement.
I feel healed. I made a confession to a Priest, followed his advice and have become involved in letting people know that they are carrying a life inside of them. I feel very good about myself now.
It made me a much sadder person for a while. The quick-fix didnt work for me. I feel that I am a stronger advocate for life because of my abortion.
