Although it's been 25 years since I had my two abortions, I'll never forget the pain of those choices.
My name is Shannon and I want to reassure you that if you are struggling with an abortion that you regret, you aren't alone.
There are many reasons why a woman might find herself in the position of choosing an abortion--whether she was raped, pressured, or simply did not know how to cope with an unplanned pregnancy, the choice to abort is never made in haste. And yet, even under the most understandable circumstances, it is very common for a woman to come to regret her choice to abort. In my own instances, I chose abortion because I had been convinced that I would be saving my unborn children from the pain of feeling unwanted by their fathers. If only I could have believed that my love was enough--and that whatever I lacked, God would provide.
I didn't talk about my abortions for a quarter of a century. And now the time has come to speak out; to reach out to others like me who carry with them the secret of a regret that never fades, despite the passing of time. Abortion hurts women. There are documented studies that confirm the existence of post-abortive trauma. If you carry feelings of shame, depression, regret, or fear relating to an abortion, please don't hesitate to contact me today.
