Formerly pro-choice woman regrets her abortions

From a woman who had two abortions:

“For ten years, I was pro-choice. I justified my actions by feeling anger toward the pro-life movement for not supporting pregnant women. But I never asked about their services. After all, it was my body, and I could do what I pleased with it.…

One day while watching my daughter, it finally hit me – I had killed my two children. I wept bitterly. My heart ached to hold my babies. Falling to my knees in prayer, I asked God for his forgiveness for my selfishness and deceit.”
