Woman suffers for 20 years after her abortion

A woman describes her abortion pain:

“People think that having an abortion is a quick fix, a mend-all for an accident or a bad mistake. Some will reason that nobody will know about it, and nobody will see the awful thing we did…Abortion does hurt. It always carries severe consequences with it. Abortion not only kills the little baby, but it affects and even destroys all life around it. I know, for it destroyed my marriage and relationship with my family and relatives and put me under a bondage of unworthiness, depression, guilt, shame, and self-condemnation for more than 20 years.”
