    Have you had an abortion?

    Whispers From The Womb

    Little did I know what would come from such an uneducated decision. I had just graduated high school and turned 18 when I found myself in an unexpected pregnancy. For several days I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster. I would cry day after day not knowing what to do. Most of my family and friends said "you've got your whole life ahead of you just get an abortion and it will be over." Unfortunately I made that trip to Atlanta and found myself on a cold table with the nurse holding my hand and telling me some of those same words "it will be over soon."
    Here I am almost 28 years later and my abortion is never over. I tried putting it out of my mind, after all they told me it was just a blob of tissue, so why was I having such a hard time getting over it? For many years I suffered with anxiety, nightmares and severe depression.
    It wasn't until I started attending church that I realized I needed healing & forgiveness for my choice of abortion. As my relationship with Christ grew I accepted His forgiveness and learned that the hardest part was forgiving myself.
    Since then God has used my abortion experience and me in ways that I would have never imagined. I have been a director of a Pregnancy Resource Center for over 10 years now, sharing with women all the options of an unexpected pregnancy. I have written with God's inspiration, "Whispers From The Womb" a small book of poems from babies in the womb to different people that may have found themselves involved in an abortion. One poem, "Please Mommy Please", became part of my testimony, because had I heard those words I do not believe I would have chosen abortion. I pray that many women or even men who have been affected by abortion can find healing and accept forgiveness through my website www.whispersfromthewomb.com. But most of all, I pray that many babies will be saved and their voices heard through Whispers From The Womb.
