“I’m getting an abortion next Friday and I haven’t told anyone about my decision, mainly because all of my friends are gossipy and close-knit, and word would get around quickly. My family is extremely conservative, and would probably disown me if they knew I was even having sex. The guy is my on/off long-distance boyfriend who broke up with me last time I had a pregnancy scare because he couldn’t “go back to normal after that drama” and it took weeks for him to calm down. If he knew I was actually pregnant and getting an abortion, he’d flip out and leave again, and I can’t handle that right now.
Also, I’m 20 and in college studying to be an engineer. We do use protection, but the condoms must have failed.
I’m 17 weeks into the pregnancy, and the doctor says it’ll have to be a 2-day procedure. The clinic is 20 min away (an hour by bus, which is how I’m getting there) and because I don’t have anyone coming with me, I won’t be asleep/sedated during the procedure. They’ll just be using a local anesthetic.
I’m really scared of the procedure, and how much it’ll hurt, and feeling really alone right now and after the procedure. I just wish I could talk to someone about it, and have someone there with me, but that’s not an option.
I guess the point of this post is looking for support and people to talk to, and if anyone has had an abortion. Please don’t tell me not to do it – I can’t raise a child, nor bring it to term. I’ve been sick most of the pregnancy, and it keeps getting worse.”
We live in a very fallen and broken world. This poor woman needs God’s loving mercy and grace. Let us pray to our Mother in Heaven, that she will be open to the Holy Spirit and spare her pre born child from death. She has been taken in by a culture that does not consider a child in the womb a person worthy of life. She has been taken in by a boyfriend who uses her and refuses to man up. Yet she claims that he is a good guy because she loves him.
Yep. The so called sexual revolution has been so liberating for women. Not.
