I Have Regret

I have had an abortion two and half weeks ago it has been really difficult on me. I really don't know how to be happy lately i can't help it. I feel like i'm the world's worst mother I KILLED MY CHILD. I was 4 months pregnant when i went into get the abortion done, its a long story about why it was so long. All i know is that guilt is getting me. I decided to come to this website to help me work through the problems.

I think you made the right choice. You cared enough about your child that you wanted to give it the best life possible. You knew due to age, finances, etc that you wouldnt be able to at this time. It would have been more selfish to bring a child into the world when you arent ready for it. I have respect for the decision you made.

Go to passboards.org if you need post-abortion support and share stories with similar people.

So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?' <br />
She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.' <br />
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.' <br />
She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request. <br />
Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms.<br />
This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.<br />
<br />
The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to kill a child! <br />
'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.<br />
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. <br />
He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb.<br />
The crime is the same!<br />

I had an abortion 5 months ago and I feel death hit me I feel absolutly horrible I don't even belive in them but I already have 2 kids and get no financial help from the father and live with my parents who are older and having my mom pressuring me to do it didn't help at all plus the father is on and off drugs has always been in and out of jail so I felt it wasn't fair to bring a 3rd child into this world without a father and without my own home. But I am soo bad all I do is cry everyday. I applied for disablity at age 30 because I am such a wreck

im in the same boat as you, i had an abortion just a week ago at two months. was something i now regret and even though people say to me to not look at it as killing your child, i do. i regrety my decision now and wish i had thought harder about it even though i know it was the right decision for me. i have no one to talk to about it and would really appreciate it if you could comment back. thank you, take care x

You obviously had you reasons and the hormones won't be helping.<br />
Having guilt is a good thing. I believe abortions are important to have around but I had a friend who had 3 abortions in 4 years and did'nt even care, at least you have a heart. Don't worry, you will get through it.

Your in my prayers sweetheart , if you need an ear to listen send me a message ...... :)

Thank you so much for your kind words it means a lot. This website is the most amazing website everybody that i have talked to hais been so nice to me. From going to no support to support it means the world.

Hello my new friend , I just read your story and my heart goes out to you. I have never had an abortion but i did have a miscarraige when i was much younger and i know the hurt. My younger sister had an abortion just like you at 4 months, it was very tramatic for her also. I don't know your situation but i believe if you ask God to help in your healing he hears you, and His word is truth He is the comforter. I'm a christian so i don't believe in abortion but i believe God is a big God and he is a forgiving God. And He loves you just the same. Your baby does live on in Gods presence now and you will see this child one day. So with all your going through right now call on Him to comfort you. I don't even know if you believe in God but i know for sure He exist i have seen his healing hand in so many situations. With all your going through you need hope and comfort and God is the only one that can give this. We all make decisions in life that hurt and we have to carry these hurts, but God is a good God He says give Him your heartaches and burdens He will carry them for you. So just wanted you to know YOU are loved and i will pray for you sweetie.
