Abortion Story: Georgia
Submitted to Abort73 by a 32-year-old woman on September 17, 2017.
A year ago, today, I did the unthinkable. Pro-life me had an abortion. I submitted my story back in December, so I would like to follow up with the reality I’m facing a year later. The anxiety, the pain, and the grief still haunts me daily. While I know my God forgives me, I still feel so much regret and guilt at being here. The consequences of abortion take away the happiness of your life. The what-ifs and regrets are momentous. Choose life. No matter what you are going through, the resentment you have for yourself for taking a life can't be fixed easily. I'm not the same person I was before. There is this cloud that hangs over me all the time that will never go away. My dark secret eats at me and has sucked away the life in me because I sucked away the life of another being that would have been remarkable. My story will be used for good—I feel it. It just takes time and perseverance.
