I was 19 and a sophomore in college when I had my abortion. I was in a new relationship and felt very pressured by the father of the baby. He said he was't ready. I am Native American and was the first in my family to go to college. I knew that if I kept the baby then I would have to go back home to the reservation - as a young person I thought that was my only choice. I felt backed into a corner with no way out except abortion. After my abortion I felt sorry and pain for many years. I ended up marrying the boyfriend a few years later and we had 2 other beautiful children but sadly our marriage could not last the shadow of the abortion. My only redemption from the suffering has been through the healing of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has accepted and loved me despite the decision to kill my own child. I am grateful for his forgiveness and acceptance. After a particularly painful day - I got on my knees and asked the Lord to please please take away this pain. I immediately felt peace and love inside myself. Thank you Jesus.
