Post-Abortive woman still regrets abortion 38 years later

Ramona Blount, who had an abortion at 17, writes about not being informed:

“I am outraged that at 17 I could go into a clinic, and without any counseling or information, kill my unborn child. I don’t remember all the details of that day so long ago, but I remember that they were worried I might be too far along to do the abortion. I think I had to come back on another day after they confirmed the pregnancy. To be honest, I don’t even remember if they did an ultrasound, but guaranteed I was not offered to see the baby, nor was I given any information about the gestational age, what my baby looked like, or anything that might have persuaded me to change my mind. I got dropped off by my boyfriend’s sister and endured that horrible procedure alone. After it was over, I had no one that I could talk to about it, but I knew what I had done….

It’s been at least 38 years and I still wish I could undo that choice that I made on that horrible day when I killed my baby….oh, how I wish someone had told me, “It’s a life! This is your baby! Give that child a chance to live!…I have regretted that decision ever since the day that I made it.”
