I had an abortion about 6 years ago now when i was 19 and at the name i was treating it as a joke and really honestly didnt even care and went into the clinic actually feeling excited that i was going to get rid of this thing inside me. Even after the procedure was complete and the people told me to go sit down and have a cup of coffee i was like no im fine really excited that id had the procedure done and said i really wanted to leave, so i did. I ran out of the building estatic and met my friends and forgot about it straight away. That was until a few months ago when i started to watch television programmes with new children being born and the happiness on the new parents faces, and also seeing all my friends really happy with their little children. Even though i generally feel that at the time this was the best descision for me i now feel really upset about this and have been forcing myself to look at photographs of 8 week old aborted babies which was how far i was gone when i had the procedure. I feel really really terrible about myself and even though i do really really want children with my boyfriend in the future im terrified that i may never be able to get pregnant or that something may happen to my baby because of the horrible thing that i did 6 years ago and am now scared to death of even trying for a baby incase this is the truth and i dont know how to stop feeling like this. Please help x

Dear jbris,
Thank you for the honor of sharing your story with us. I am grieving your loss with you. I hope that it is ok if I share with you how I got help after my abortion. I didn't realize how the abortion had affected me until 15 years later. I had become very suicidal and realized that the only One who could help me was Jesus, who I had turned my back on for years. I gave my heart and my life back to Him and got help through an abortion recovery group, where I was able to face what I had done and ask Jesus for forgiveness and after going through the healing process able to forgive myself, with His help. There is help and hope for you, my sister. Call the helpline and they can refer you to someone in your area: 1-866-482-LIFE
If you haven't already done so, ask Jesus to come into your heart and forgive you, and He will. He loves you more than anyone on earth ever could and wants to give you His peace and comfort. Healing after abortion is a process, but it is worth it. I am proud of you for asking for help, without waiting too long.
Don't give up, just trust in Jesus, He will show you what to do.
You are so loved and appreciated,
Nona
