This iReport is part of an assignment:
Have you had an abortion?
Are You Posting Out of Desire to Assuage Your Guilt?
I created my post so that others would know my story. Not to assuage any guilt, I have none. Not to eliminate years of misery, I am a happy woman. And, finally, not to bring to light my years of self pity as I am not pitiful.
So many of you who have regrets mention Jesus Christ. I am wondering, is this part of your healing, to publicly post your self loathing over having had an abortion? I am not surprised by the number of you who feel intense remorse, I am surprised at how many of you feel it is necessary to let others know that without the help of Jesus you could not have come through this, yet you still feel shame.
Snap out of it, get on with your lives and live. You should feel more guilt over you self-flagellation and years of wallowing in misery. I think that G d would be happier to know you've forgiven yourselves for your self-induced transgression and moved on with your lives.
