After 14 years, I was pregnant, my husband was not happy
After fourteen years of marriage, I was pregnant. My husband was not happy about it. I had a son. My husband became ill, so life was difficult. Then I became pregnant again. His mother died. He had to have a blood transfusion. I had to decide what to do. It could have meant divorce as things were so bad. I had no-one to talk to. Everyone took it for granted that I would abort, even the doctor. I had been a Christian at sixteen but made a mess of my life.
After the abortion, I felt suicidal, but things changed. My husband is now a Christian. We have had Christian counselling and we have asked God to forgive us. I no longer hurt and we celebrate 45 years together this October. Abortion is not something to take lightly, but even if you have had an abortion, God still loves you and will heal and forgive.
