    Have you had an abortion?


    In 1985, at age 25, I had an abortion. I was supposedly saw a counselor at the Planned Parenthood Facility who told me not to worry, God forgives and to go ahead with the abortion. That was not counseling. I had the abortion. I eventually married someone else in 1987. I had 4 children and in 1994, I had a miscarriage. I became depressed, knowing that I had murdered my first child. I have had to seek counseling and have since been dealing with off and on depression. I have since had four more children and have also had 4 more miscarriages. I know that those miscarriages would have been prevented had I not had that abortion. I lost a child with that abortion as well as five more (miscarried). A loss of six addition precious lives. My story will probably not be told as it is against abortion, but I think you should know how abortion really affects women and those that will be missed.
