Regret after having an abortion is common and normal, and it makes a lot of sense why you would be feeling this way if you rushed into it. Its a big decision to make, and often times we wish we had more time or had done something differently. We can’t go back in time, but we can learn to live with the pain and let it make us stronger, allow the hurt to become less overbearing through healing. I have two tabs on my blog “Self Care” and “Post Abortion Rituals” perhaps some ideas on there may help you become closer to peace. You deserve to forgive yourself, to know you did the very best you could at the time, it can be too easy to judge our past selves in hindsight but that just isn’t fair. One day you will have the kids you were meant to, and it will be right. *hugs* <3 -Kate
Anon, don’t listen to the selfish advice from provoicesupportblog. People who try to convince you that your child should be erased from your life are the same people who likely pushed you to abort in the first place. Notice how they never mentioned your child? That’s how they are able to support the killing and those who participate in it. They conveniently ignore the one who’s life is ended.
I, too, wish you had held on to your baby, but he or she is now forever gone. There is only one way to begin your journey to redemption and recovery: stand against the depraved act of human abortion. Work every day to save the lives of those children who are scheduled to die tomorrow. Dedicate every life you save to the child you killed. Don’t let your child’s death have been in vain. Stand for Life.
