This really hits home with me. I shamefully admit that I have had two abortions in my life time and have lived with regret for many years. I was 18 with the first pregnancy. In my heart I was happy but I allowed shame and fear of what people would say get the best of me. At the time of the 2nd pregnancy, I was 29, single, and an active member in my church. I asked the child’s father if he would stick with me just to give me the courage I needed to face the same fears I had at 18, instead he gave the money to kill any chance of me becoming a mother. I’m 45 now and those babies have lived in my mind every day, and every day I wish I would have kept my babies. God forgive me.
