I am 45 years old. I had an abortion when I was 21 years old...

I am 45 years old. I had an abortion when I was 21 years old. I regretted the abortion for a very long time. I felt guilty and ashamed. The reason I had the abortion was because of fear of telling my parents and, at the time, my ex-boyfriend . I had gotten pregnant by a guy that I really loved. I fell in love with this person but I also was afraid because I never felt that in love before. To this day I regret the abortion. I have got past it because I know I have been forgiven. I have been forgiven by God. He has given me a new life since I met him. I am married now for 21 years to a very special man who is my ex-boyfriend who also knew about the abortion I had. I have children now and I love them so much. But I will always remember the little child that I carried and if I could go back I never would have chosen to kill him or her. It is murder. When you are in a crisis like this one, you are not really thinking about the right thing to do. You are desperate and think you’re doing the right thing. Please don't have an abortion. In the end everything works out. God created the child for a reason. Please take my advice.
