I am meant to have an abortion tomorrow. Not really sure why I am even sending you this message. You seem to think it never is the answer. However this baby which I love and want to keep might very possibly ruin other lives, other children’s lives too.
I keep on thinking it is unfair that I have placed my own baby in this position and that she has to be the sacrifice but I just don’t see any way around it. I know I messed up and it is all my fault. I will hate and resent myself forever but feel in a way I am protecting other innocent lives. Things aren’t always straight forward.
Life can be challenging at times, but the use of violence against your children to resolve those challenges is never the answer. Your daughter’s life should not be sacrificed to ease a temporary burden. You seem to understand that you have a responsibility to protect her from harm, even when harming her will ease your life and the lives of others.
There are thousands of families desperately waiting to adopt a precious child just like your daughter. Although it’s currently legal to simply kill her, the law allowing this is profoundly wrong and unjust. As you stated, if you have her ripped from the safety of your womb, you will have to live with the knowledge that you took your own child’s life for the remainder of yours. Please don’t make this irreversible mistake.
My mother aborted my little sister when I was a toddler. She, like you, felt that ending my sister’s life would benefit both of us. She has lived with crushing guilt since that terrible day, and I have lived as an only child, never knowing the love and companionship of my baby sister. Her abortion has had a negative impact on both of us for many years, with many more years of regret and pain to come.
