I am new here, and I want to share my story with you. I am 22, and had 2 abortions at 20, one in March and the other one in August. From then on, i have had trouble wit the guilt and all. Anyway I have since learnt to forgive myself and accept that I made a mistake, as it is said to err is human. It has also been said that it is not a mistake to make a mistake, but to repeat it.
I am in a relationship with a guy that always stressed me about us having a baby with him, but I was reluctant to do that because I did not want to have a child outside of marriage. However, I have just discovered that I am pregnant, and my bf appears as if he is not so keen on our having this baby. I have however decided that I want to have this child and I don’t want to have to go thru the same pain that I felt when I had those abortions. I keep thinking that this is my chance to redeem myself and be able to live with myself.
All that I will say to all of you out there, is that abortion is just a quick fix to a problem, but it will never remedy the situation, the scars go deeper and deeper, and you will have them for life. I hope that, no matter how hopeless the situation looks, we will all choose life.
I am so glad you have been able to move beyond the pain of the past and are going to make the loving choice to have this child. I admire your strength. I hope your boyfriend becomes more supportive of you and his child. – Kate
Anyway, i have learnt to move on and I am going to do right by this child. He told me that he did not want anything to do with this child and that he would deny paternity if anyone asks him about it because he wants me to have an abortion and because I am refusing the baby is mine and mine alone and therefore my responsibility. I am however not worried about this all, cause I am working and I think that with proper budgeting I can look after my child well. Howerver, i am just glad that he showed me his true colours now, and I know where I stand.
