Dear Karen,
I watched the videos of women telling of their experience with abortion. I think that in these videos the women came off as if they were victims rather than the victimizer,as though they had a crime done against them rather than having willfully committed a crime themselves, and many of us know the truth about ourselves. There are many of us who were offered by the clinician in the abortion clinic to see their baby on the ultrasound screen and did so before going through with the abortion. For us it was a willful &  extremely selfish decision. This truth should be addressed too. Karen I’ve had two abortions, one my mom hauled me off to at age 15 and at that time I had no idea what was happening at all I just thought that I was pregnant and then I wouldn’t be after my mom took me to see a doctor.  Years later, before my salvation, at age 23 I think, I aborted – murdered- another baby.


At that time I knew to look for such a doctor and thought that was how to “take care” of unwanted pregnancies. This time I was shown a sonogram of a baby boy at the clinic. Even so, 
it didn’t hit me that I was choosing to murder a human being even after seeing that moving baby boy!
Some of us knew fully well what we were doing and didn’t care about anything but  ” doing away with our problem”, sin blinds you and all you see is what you want.  Saying this, admitting this, gives the full view of the horrification of sin within ourselves. 

I have a friend who had an abortion & says it is the best choice she could have made for her life and does not regret doing so. She says she is a Christian. She would watch these videos and say that for these ladies it wasn’t a good choice, they were misinformed.

I was so blinded by my sin that what I wanted or rather didn’t want for my life is what mattered most to me back then. I did spiral downward into depression and became a drunkard and more promiscuous after that. Very shortly thereafter I absolutely hated my life. 

I guess what I am trying to say is that there are many of us who were indeed informed before having an abortion anyway. I don’t know quite how to put it, but I think that pointing out the fact that abortion is a sin against God Himself & that because we are sinners we are willing to do such horrific sins against him and others such as murdering our own babies for nothing but selfish reasons would perhaps be most listened to & helpful to the many who were informed well & yet made or will considering making that choice.

If I were asked to tell my abortion story I’d want to emphasize that I murdered my child for totally selfish reasons and that that is the power of sin within and why I need a savior. Jesus did say “He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” (John 12:25 NKJV) At the lowest point of my life, I cried out to God to show me truth and I’ll follow; on February 14, 1985, He did and I do.
