Nurse who assisted with abortions still has nightmares

A nurse who assisted in abortions still has nightmares 20 years later:

“I have never had an abortion, but I am an RN who feels as if I have had one… emotionally. I assisted with them for 10 years. After 10 years of emotional “rape,” I finally grew strong enough to stop assisting them in all ways. My depression has gone, and I have adopted a child. I have not assisted with an abortion in 20 years. I prayed for forgiveness and I know I am forgiven, but the nightmares continue.”
