Woman describes trauma after her abortion

From a post-abortion woman. She wrote this 15 years after her abortion:

“For 15 years, I have lived with the shame and guilt of my abortion. It has kept me from bonding with friends and robbed me of my self-esteem. Throughout all of these years, to be happy made me feel tremendous guilt. I have never felt that I deserved anything good in my life. In my punishment, I never allowed myself to experience true joy. Any blessing that had come after my abortion, I couldn’t enjoy to the fullest. I’ve been convinced I didn’t deserve any of them.…

Anxiety attacks, depression, guilt and shame were just a few of the repercussions of my decision to abort…

For all these years, I have hated my boyfriend, the doctor, the clinic workers, and even the pro-lifers for what I did. I wondered where they were on that Saturday morning. Why weren’t they there screaming at me, begging me not to go in.”
