Hi, my name is Kelly. I'm 52. This is the story about my abortion.
I had one when I was 17. The father wanted me to get one. I was totally afraid to tell my parents, and I felt very alone. I really didn't think of it as a baby but as a problem. So, I decided to have an abortion.
I went by myself. All I remember is holding the nurse’s hand, because it hurt badly. It felt like the doctor was taking my insides out.
I had a lot of mental problems after that. I had no faith in God. I actually prayed to the devil at one time.
I pretty much forgot about it, until l I was older and had a son at 25. I went through RCIA in the Catholic Church. That’s when I finally turned Catholic, and I found Jesus! I love my Catholic faith.
I'm still healing, and I think it’s because it's hard to tell people that I had an abortion. I feel the baby was a girl.
I know God has forgave me, but I really don't know if I have forgiven myself. I am pro-life and want to learn more about everything. Pray for me, and I will pray for you.
In Jesus Christ,
