Parents of Pro-Life youth volunteers:
I want to share a very personal story with you, it’s not an easy thing but I feel it’s time to allow myself to use my story in a positive way. This morning as I sit with a heavy heart, shame that can’t be measured, tears flow, and prayer it’s been 34 years. I was forced 34 years ago today to have an abortion. Please don’t pity or feel sorry for me, that’s not my reason for sharing this. I remember every detail of that horrible life-changing day like it was yesterday. I read your post about your children fighting for unborn babies and I can’t help but be so proud of them and their parents. I would have done ANYTHING for ANYONE 34 years ago to walk up to me, someone I could have said I DO NOT want to do this, please help me!!! There was no one that day, the woman at the clinic told me don’t say that, you should have thought about that before you had sex at a young age and it’s not going to be as fun getting your illegitimate child out as it was in. I wish I would have had the courage to use my voice but I surrendered and was a coward. I know there are young girls and women who must feel as I did. I pray for the wonderful work your family is doing and the lives they are touching and those they are saving, I pray for you and your husband for instilling such morals, values, and a godly heart in your family. Thank you dear lady for your wonderful family that you share and know I receive encouragement from the works y’all do.
God bless yall!!!
