    Have you had an abortion?

    A Lifetime of Regret

    My abortion was before Roe vs Wade. I like most women felt it was the best decision at the time. Regardless of your political view, the carnage of collateral damage of women like me should be recognized and validated. The law provided this “procedure” which was not referred to as an abortion, a mother’s health risk. I foolishly believed it was not a baby. It was just tissue. I was told I would feel immediately better. Physically yes I felt better -- emotionally never again. All of these years later, I still grieve for the loss of this child. I will forever regret this choice.
