I was almost killed by abortion. Seriously. My birth mother was sitting in her room thinking she would do it. If my father hadn’t stepped in to save me it would have likely happened. I would have had my entire body destroyed in the name of someone else’s ‘choice’. 

I wouldn’t have even been given the respect of a real burial. 

I would have never met the father who loved me so very much and he wouldn’t have been so prompted to change his life for the better. 

I would have never heard the songs that make my entire body want to get up and move. 

I would have never seen a sunrise and decide that morning was my favorite time of day. 

The absolute love of my life, my soulmate. I would never have met him and gotten to see and feel his beauty. 

I would never have been able to help the people that I’ve helped. 

I’d never taste my favorite food (french toast).

I’d never meet my siblings. 

I’d never have the family of my own that I spend every day dreaming about. 

I’d never get to experience the life-changing journey that I’m embarking on. 

I can go on and on. I love my life so very much and all of it and all of this ^… was almost taken away from me and I would have had no justice. I spent my childhood constantly reminded of how disposable I was and to this day I feel so afraid because I am so lucky to have this life and I panic if I ever think that I may be wasting a moment of it. Sometimes these thoughts give me straight-up insomnia.

So it really makes me so frustrated when people think they can just assume that because I don’t have one organ, one chunk of flesh inside me, that abortion doesn’t affect me. It has always affected me. It almost took my life away and I wont stop until it can’t take any more lives away at least without some justice! 

There are 2 people primarily affected by abortion. Don’t act like I have no right to speak just because I’ll never be one of them, because I’ve already been the other.
