Marilyn,

I would call the option line number or go to their website, or I would contact your local Birthright or crisis pregnancy center. They may be able to help you emotionally and financially with the pregnancy. They might be able to help you with housing and medical bills for the pregnancy or point you to somewhere that can. Good luck.

Kate

Having a kid is a no brainer an abortion is not a no brainer. See, that is where your problem is. You're still making excuses for why you had an abortion. Until you quit making excuses you will never completely own your problems. I feel sorry for you if you can't have anymore kids. That was one of the reasons I had my child. I knew the risks of abortion and I wasn't sure if my child would be my only child so why risk sterility because I was afraid for my career, etc..?. We don't know our futures only God does, but He lets us live freely that is the beauty of it all. The fact is, you don't know if you will have kids again so quit worrying and live your life. The more you feel sorry for yourself the longer it will take you to become happy. You are so young and when you are older you will realize how your thought processes at 18, 19 were pretty selfish. You need a lot of healing and it is gonna suck to have to be miserable and deal with this trauma. So, you gotta get help and reach out to other. I recently walked in the March for Life campaign on Constitution Ave. in Wash., D.C., and there were women holding signs that said, \"I Regret My Abortion.\" Maybe you can be one of those women one day, too. God bless.

Hello Stephanie. My name is Claire and i can really relate to what you are going through. I hated myself for a very long time and still get a little sad about what might have been when i think about what i did. I had an abortion at the age of 18. I sometimes have the same fears of not being able to become pregnate, and others judging me for what i have done in my past. But one thing that helps me realize what a beautiful life i live today is that just because i messed up back then, doesn't mean that i have to make the same mistakes that lead up to me having an abortion. Also, in order for me to learn from my mistakes, i must not forget my past. My past is my greatest asset for continuing to learn, love and help others. See, what you wrote in your post helped me. You helped me remeber what is like to feel like no one knows how i feel.Today i KNOW for a fact that i am not alone. This website proves it. Today i try to share my experience to others who are having similar problems. I think you writing what you did in your post was awsome and i really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was very hard for me to open up in the beginning about what i had done. I still have a hard time talking about it sometimes. But i know that things will get better if i continue to do the next right thing in my daily life. ( meaning checking my motives, seeing if i am doing something because of fear, trying not to hurt other by my actions, being as honest as i can....the list goes on and on) I am not perfect, and i still screw up. But I love myself today. And i am pretty sure if you keep on expressing yourself, maybe get somes sort of support group outside of this, and keep on trying to become a better person by being honest with yourself, that life will become better and you will be just fine. I say this because ,in a nut shell, that is what i did. Thanks- Claire
