I had abortion, because I didn’t know God, and I didn’t know about the truth of abortion. I told my mother I was pregnant, and the first thing she said was, "You’re going to get an abortion. Don’t tell anyone." I was so entangled with and codependent on my mother that I listened to her without hesitation.
The abortion experience was so dehumanizing, humiliating, and traumatic. The clinic and doctor treated me the worst. As I cried and screamed during the procedure, they told me, “Be quiet, we don’t want you to scare other patients." It was the most disturbing experience of my life.
After I tried to commit suicide, I went into a downward spiral, deep into drug addiction and prostitution.
After I hit another bottom of desperation, I turned my life and will over to the care of God, to Jesus Christ. I thought I couldn’t be forgiven. I thought people like me deserved to die. But I have found healing through Christ. I am no longer suffering from the shame of my past decisions, though it was wrong. I’m a new woman through the Grace of God.
