I had an abortion...

“I had an abortion at the age of 18. I was pregnant and living at home with parents. My parents were ashamed of me considering my child to be was multi-racial. They paid for the abortion.

The day of the procedure I tried to back out. My mother wouldn’t have it. She said she was not wasting her money and yelled at me to go. I had the worst post-abortion depression of my life. Was suicidal for several months and it finally lifted.

I became pregnant again a year later, again an unwanted pregnancy. I decided I was not going to abort and had the baby. He is now 22 and has been the greatest person and blessing I could ever ask for. My only regret is not ever being able to know the person my first abortion was.” —Kellie
