“I wish I had my baby”

From one postabortion woman:

“I cried during the abortion. The nurse thought I was in pain, but it wasn’t physical pain. That night when the sedative wore off, I wanted to die. After that, at parks or children’s events I mourned the baby I had aborted and couldn’t fully appreciate the children I had. Not a day goes by that I do not wish I had my baby.”

Her doctor had told her it was too risky to have another child.
