 Most womens feelings after an abortion are those of relief. So it is perfectly normal for you to not feel anything.

No, that just means that you truly made the right decision for yourself.

I think its pretty normal to not feel a whole lot , maybe even to feel relieved.

Meh.  Some people feel something, others don't.  I don't think your reaction is abnormal at all.  It all depends on the context in which you believe.  Some people feel like it's a baby then and it's murder, others are like it's not a baby yet and it's not...I'm so over the debate.  I personally feel abortion after 12 weeks should be banned unless it's to save the life of the mother or the baby has a fatal defect or a defect which will drastically affect his or her quality of life...but eh, that's my feelings.  I don't like abortion period but I maintain it should 100% be the woman's choice.  So...I think you're in the clear.  Carry on.

I had one in my early 20's b/c found out I was pregnant only TEN DAYS I left this man I STUPIDLY married right out of college.  He was a pathological liar, a cheat (gave me an STD), thief (I'm pretty sure), ran up TONS of bills in MY name & would have been a HORRIBLE father. I would have been tied to him forEVER.  Would have NEVER gotten CS from him.

At least by doing this the child would go STRAIGHT to Heaven. 

Talked with my pastor, others but even my Sun. School teacher said it would be the best thing even tho he didn't necessarily believe in it. 

I just tried NOT to think about it, believing I did the best thing for the Child.  Moved on with my life.  Met, married a wonderful man, father of my bio son and even tho we divorced some years back, I still have my son.

Since divorce, met/married the REAL love of my life...have never been happier. 

Have never regretted having the termination of the pregnancy.

I think the "not feeling anything" is your way of coping.  What was YOUR reason for having the termination?

So you came on this board to get called names and see if then you'd feel bad?
