Abortion Poem

Letter From Mother To Aborted Fetus

I was 18 when I did it. I was going to take responsibility for my child but I let my boyfriends family talk me into it. I am not proud of myself but please it's hard enough to not judge myself, so please no one judge me.....

For My Child

For my child:
The fact I was eighteen was not the reason
Your father and I went through our seasons
He came to the conclusion a little to soon
that he did not want to see what we went through
The torment inside I feel everyday is almost to much to bear
knowing I'll never be able to caress your hair
I'll never be able to hold you
never hear you say my name
All in all no one feels my shame
I felt you move inside me
even though everyone said it was too soon
my little baby was to me like the moon
A ray of light to guide my way
I wanted the world for you to stay
I let people talk me into something I didn't want to do
He was not there to see what I went through
I almost walked out and I should have
My own selfish reasons propelled me to stay
As I had my child ripped away
I cry for  you everyday
but somehow I make it through
knowing one day I will meet you
And wishing it never would have came to this
Just know in my heart you are missed

Love,
Mommy

I know how this feels I had the same thing happen to me and at about the same age too. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think I would have a 4 year-old child right now. Thank you for showing me that I was not the only one to fall to this horrible fate.

Nobody should judge you. They don't have that right. I am a conservative, right wing, prolife individual, but when I was young I had an abortion, too. I felt instant regret. I talk to my baby. I've said I'm sorry and well if I could do it over again. Don't allow the opinions of others hurt you. People love to point the finger. Don't let them point it at you.
