I was 5 weeks when I found out I was pregnant. I’m 28 years old and I have a very wonderful fiancé (still engaged to him). We both talked about my pregnancy, as much as we wanted to very badly keep the baby we kept thinking of my parents. Because we both moved away to attend college, my parents are very concerned about mine and his education.

It was when I was 8 weeks pregnant  I took the abortion pill.  I came home that same day and experienced what was the worse thing I’ve ever done.  I couldn’t bare to see what I saw, even my fiance.  I started to hate myself and praying God for forgiveness.

I’m currently now going through medical problems after the abortion as I didn’t pass everything. I’m seeking medical help, but it makes me sick when I hear the doctor sat “termination of the pregnancy”.  No one knows about what is going on but my finace, not even my own parents.

My whole family, including distance relatives are against abortion and I just don’t have the heart to tell anyone as I’m afraid they’ll not forgive me. I’m putting it behind me and decided with my fiance to make a memoir and tell everyone when the time is right.

But still to this day I hate myself thinking what have I done, that could have been my child.

  • Dear Andrea,

    What a sad and difficult time you are going through now. If you had been told the truth by those pushing the abortion drug, you may have made a different ‘choice’. Sadly your experience echoes that of so many others who were not offered help but rather “death in a tablet” only to find out later that a part of you has also died.

    Seek help and healing from the wonderful agencies that are around to help post-abortive women. And forgive yourself. You fell for the lies of the world.

    It is your decision as to who you tell, but sometimes sharing the problem does lighten the load.

    Know that you are in our prayers.
