How Did Your Abortion
Make You Feel?
A large percentage of women believe abortion is their only choice when in crisis pregnancy. Others are coerced. Abortion is first and foremost absolutely wrong because it takes a human life. But abortion also destroys the souls of those who partake. One abortion affects 40 to 50 people in a lifetime. Here is an informal poll we took on Facebook asking women how their abortions left them feeling in the aftermath. The photo is from our film "Arise Sweet Sarah" to be released September 2015 during the scene "Baby Not Okay". Our vision for our work is to bring hope, healing and forgiveness to people who have suffered after choice, and to share our stories so others choose differently. Below are just some of the responses from our poll of the aftermath of abortion. Please share how your abortion left you feeling in the comment section, as well, to add to our gathering of information, and know there is healing.

I felt a profound sense of loss, shame, depressed and empty inside....Numb like I was outside my body... I couldn't feel...Rejected, abandoned, worthless, broken, shattered dreams and esteem....She kept the biggest secret that any person could, and a year later when she told me... That's when I realized that the one thing that I would of loved to death, I had never got a chance to.....Helpless......Deceived....Broken. Empty. Insignificant. Worthless. Burdened. Dark. Hated.....Despised. Wicked. Evil. Indifferent. Aloof. Helpless. Hopeless.....Childless. Barren. Unlovable. Unforgivable....Depressed - suicidal – until Jesus....Hatred at myself and my boyfriend and mother and Planned Parenthood for coercing me. Suicidal, depression, did whatever drugs I could get and that's when I started drinking to numb out the feelings. Evil and cold. Hopeless and helpless....Empty, half alive, ashamed....Cried, sad, lost, not sure of anything. It took me over 30 years of mental, emotional pain before I was able to face what I had done. I was mad at myself for letting my mother make all the decisions and appointments....Empty but not understanding why because I bought into the lie that there was no baby, just tissue and cells......At first I felt numb and empty; then I buried it deep inside. 20 years later I shattered. God put me back together little by little....
I chased money and success for about 13 years (we were poor which was one reason I had the abortion because my mom said she'd kick me out because she couldn't afford to feed another mouth)... then went thru a short marriage, divorce, bankruptcy, everything fell apart and it all hit and I was suicidal again. Then Jesus wooed me and I gave my heart to Him.. then the healing Bible study came about 5 years after that....Relieved, numb, hated myself...Lifeless. worthless......I felt broken, mutilated and empty, forever changed.......Numb, in lock down, no real clue at that stage what I had done to myself......Relieved and numb (I have noticed that it is a life changing event. It is life before my abortion life after my abortion. There is no in between.)...A deep sense of loss, depressing sadness. I knew deep down in my heart that what I had chose to do was wrong and that abortion took the life of my innocent son....Nauseated, angry... At myself, at society, and that I felt deceived by those who were in an authority position...My abortion made me feel depressed. Very angry at the people who loved me telling me abortion was okay and normal. That it was my only option. Regretful. Ashamed. Lifeless.
Straight from the mouth of an abortionist:
"Sorrow, quite apart from the sense of shame, is exhibited in some way by virtually every woman for whom I performed an abortion, and that’s 20,000 as of 1995. The sorrow is revealed by the fact that most women cry at some point during the experience… The grieving process may last from several days to several years… Grief is sometimes delayed… The grief may lie sublimated and dormant for years."
