My mom gave me the choice to have an abortion at the age of 14. Since she suggested it, I felt is must be a good choice. However as soon as the abortion was completed, I felt a short sigh of relief that my secret of pregnancy out of wedlock was covered up, it was immediately followed by a deep black hole in my stomach which told me I had done a terrible thing. I cried repeatedly for the next several months. In fact, in the next 20 years I cried in secret because I could not share what I had done in dark with no one. You see I never forgot about the child I aborted because I was constantly reminded at doctors offices when asked 'How many pregnancies, how many live births'? It was not until I asked God to forgive me for my decision, could I forgive myself. Now I am free to discuss what happened to me and try to let others know the other side of abortion.
