I chose abortion out of convenience. I thought I could have it and then move on back into my comfortable life without regard to life, because I didn’t think the baby inside of me was a life.
My abortions were all performed in a cold and lonely setting…they told me no aftermath, no problems, and I was offered no counseling. After all it was legal…how could it be bad? The government backed it and passed a law saying it was legal. I used abortions as a contraceptive, because I did NOT understand life.
I shoved my three abortions in the back of my mind and really was numb to them for many years. I covered up my feelings with drugs and alcohol and casual sex…thinking all the while that these things could allow me to forget what I did.
This leads me to today…my husband I and speak out about our one shared abortion so that other men and women don’t have to suffer in silence as we did. I speak out for those who cannot. I pray and ask for forgiveness from my three children, Colleen, Maura and John…my life would be very different had I made another choice rather than abortion.
The reason I am Silent No More is that my three abortions kept me in bondage for over 20 years…the fact that I never or rarely spoke of them kept me down and kept me from moving out of depression...out of bondage. My three abortions were the worst decision I could have ever made…my biggest regret in life is not having children. They told me it was a simple procedure, no aftermath, no problem…life was to go on…but it didn’t…I just functioned but I wasn’t living the life I should have lived.
Abortion is one of the biggest industries….you think Planned Parenthood or abortion mills care about women…they care about the money you give them and then they get funding…it is all about the MONEY, nothing else. I will never be silent and am Silent No More.
