On April 4, 2002, I had an abortion. I was 13 years old. The man who I was pregnant by was a 20 year old alcoholic/drug addict. When my parents found out, they told me that I could not keep the baby, they couldn't afford it. So my mom told me my only two options were adoption and abortion. My god-parents cant have children, I wanted to give my baby to them. After thinking about how hard it would be to watch my child being raise by them, it killed me. I decided to have an abortion, it was the best thing at the time. I had just turned 13 and in a dysfunctional relationship. Two weeks after I had the abortion, the guy, went to jail for trying to run me over. and eventually stayed in jail for 2nd degree rape. It's really hard coping with this. My boyfriend tries to help me as much as he can, but he doesn't know what to say. Can anyone help me?

Sandy,
My name is Mary and at 17 years old my parents made me have an abortion too. Unfortuneately many parents think they are doing their daughters a favor and that abortion is simple and easy. There is help, hope, healing and forgiveness and you are not alone. You need to go through the healing process so that your emotions do not continue to be destructive. I know what you feel and I am sorry you are hurting. Please go to these web sites and they can put you in touch with other women counselors that have gone through this and can help you. www.operationoutcry.org www.afterabortion.org www.hopemonument.com I would love to talk to you if you want to email me at mjschoettle@aol.com

In my prayers,

Mary
