My abortion confession.

I come from a Christian and prolife family. I used to consider my self prolife.

4.5 weeks ago I had an abortion when I was 11 weeks along. I felt so ashamed about it I told my family that I miscarried. My DH has been sworn to secrecy. Everyday I deal with not only the guilt of my lie but with the fact that I chose to end my baby's life. I'm grieving for my loss, but I feel like I don't deserve to.

I feel like such a piece of shit.

Why, if you don't mind me asking, did you have it?  Was there a medical reason, or some other reason?

No judgement, I'm just curious.

Baby was a surprise and we couldn't afford it.

You shouldn't have chosen abortion if that's not what you wanted.

That was the decision you made. Hate to say it, but you'll have to live with it now.

I wouldn't beat yourself up about it.  

It was a decision.  You made the decision, now it's time to move on.  Life is just a series of decisions, after all. 

Grieve if you feel the need.

In my opinion, you did the right thing for your family at the time.  I can relate to how you're feeling.  It's ok to feel guilt and regret.  But I think you should talk to someone so that you can get your feelings out, deal with it, and move on.  You have a life that you need to live.

You'll be ok.  Hugs.
