This “Choice” Has Brought 36 Years of Horrific Pain.

Are you pro-choice? At age of 15, I “chose” abortion to terminate an untimely pregnancy. I made this decision because I heard that abortions were readily available. That meant if some people in society thought that abortion was O.K., then it must be O.K. & my life would resume as before. I made this decision because I didn’t know the truth that “the fetus” or “the pregnant tissue” was really a baby, my baby!.

In reality my 13 week old little girl was very well developed, complete with all her body organs, right down to fingernails & her own unique, distinctive appearance. I didn’t know she was very active, turning frequent somersaults, back flips, scissor kicks, sucking her thumb, showing expression such as wrinkling her forehead, turning her head & sensitive to pressure, heat, light & pain. Her name is Abbagail Rose.

This “choice” has brought 36 years of horrific pain. This “choice “brought frequent flashbacks, thoughts of suicide, hospitalized depressions, relationship problems , a nightmare of being covered   in my baby’s blood & much grief… I truly regret my abortion.

My pregnancy was the result of being set-up on a blind date, losing my virginity & being raped. These experiences pale in comparison to the experience of abortion. The fact that I was 15 years old, did not justify ending my child’s life. I know many women today who’s early, “teen pregnancy” children are being enjoyed & living full, productive lives, while I now reflect on the loss of my “teen pregnancy” child. Abortion has negatively impacted every area of my life & those I love.

This ugly secret I will hold no more! Abortion has to be the greatest crime against women & humanity in our generation. Over 2 million little ones have been aborted in Canada since 1969. Right now as you read this, 300 “Abbagail Roses” are being aborted each day in our nation, in such a grisly manner as this & worse. That means 300 women will be sent home after an abortion to process for the rest of their lives, the “choice” they made to end their child’s life. The unending pain is not worth it.

There are deceptions blatantly advertised, such as calling human life, “pregnancy tissue”. The majority of abortions take place from 7 weeks on when the fetus is fully recognizable as a human baby & very alive and active. Just as a1 year old child is still developing, but every bit a real human citizen, so a fetus that is still developing is still every bit a real human being. A person is a person no matter how small.

When a mom realizes she is pregnant & is considering abortion, what she needs is our love & celebration for both her & that beautiful “little one”& the sacred connectedness they share. She needs to see & understand the development of her baby. She needs to hear testimonials of women who have experienced abortion. She needs to know the stats on the physical, psychological, emotional & spiritual aftermath of women who have aborted. Mostly she should know that there is much loving support out there to raise her child & that she can begin that wonderful, life giving experience immediately. Having children is healthy for women & abortion is unhealthy. Abortion should not be a choice…it should be unthinkable!

On behalf of Moms & babies who’s fate is abortion, I urge you to please act on behalf of these most fragile, innocent members of our society. Abortion is really the stalking down of an innocent life, with the intent to end that life in a bloody, brutal mutilation. The child is sacrificed . This is a very unnatural, selfish action, without justification. It is an evil act & the highest form of double abuse, not only for the baby but also for the woman, even when it is her “choice”.

As a mother I think of my children everyday, including Abbagail Rose. She would have been 36 this year. She would have given much to this world. I pray that this story & remembrance of her would help put an end to abortion. I miss her.

As I continue daily to work through the pain, I also have hope of reuniting with her, thanks be to Jesus!

“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” 1 Thessalonians 2-5 NIV   Thanks for listening…
