ProLife Story 40
I'm a 20 year old woman with two children, I have been pregnant 4 times the first time I miscarried, I was only 15, then at 17 I had a beautiful little girl! At 18 I got married, I lost custody of my daughter and was fighting for almost 2 years before I lost her. At the time,I was 5 months pregnant with my second child.
When my son was born I tested positive for drugs and he was also taken from me. I still get to see him. He was given to my in-laws. Then 5 months later I got pregnant again, this time I decided an abortion was the right thing. I just couldn't handle having another one of my children being taken from me! Boy was I wrong! Now I feel like a murderer, of my own flesh and blood. I was 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant.
It was a very hard decision for me to make, and at the time I thought it was the right one, I'm not so sure now! I think about my unborn child that I murdered every time I look at my son, and it hurts me every day. Now for the rest of my life I will never be able to forgive myself for what I have done!
