Post abortive woman: “I carried the guilt of it for many, many years.”

Tameka S Bright got pregnant and had an abortion in college. She had recently lost both her parents. She says:

“I didn’t want to disappoint my family, mainly my brothers. Therefore I went through with this plan and endured the most painful experience of my life – next to losing my parents. I knew that what I was doing was wrong. I had that one friend on campus trying to talk me out of it, but I was too embarrassed. It was done. I did it… And I carried the guilt of it for many, many years.”

When she got pregnant, years later:

“With my pregnancy, I was so scared that something would be wrong with my child. The guilt of the abortion came back to me and I thought I would be punished and possibly lose the baby.”
