This iReport is part of an assignment:
Have you had an abortion?
I regret lost fatherhood
I did not grasp the far reaching responsibilities a man assumes when he decides to become intimate with a woman, not the least of which is the possibility of fatherhood. I didn't comprehend the joy and fulfillment children bring to their parents.
I have come to understand how selfish I was in this situation and in my life in general. I live with a deep emotional and spiritual wound as a result of taking the life of my own child. I experience great sorrow when I think of the life I ended. I miss my child.
