When I was a teenager, birth control failed me, and I became pregnant. My boyfriend was 18 years old, and he left me. He totally disappeared. I was very sad, because the person that told me he loved me was gone.
At the time I thought that telling my parents I was pregnant would be the hardest thing I would ever do, but I was wrong. The hardest thing I would ever do is to live without my son or daughter every day of my life, because I had an abortion. The physical and emotional pain was more than I could bear.
Since that day I have found help and healing from my abortion. I have been set free from physical and emotional pain, embarrassment, shame, guilt, and misery...and that is why I am silent no more.
