Lara, who had an abortion, wrote about how she felt when she watched a program on fetal development:
“Oh the pain I felt, there are no words!!! MY GOD, MY GOD , WHAT HAVE I DONE ? I STARTED CRYING AND THEN SCREAMING . I ran in the bedroom and locked the door and cried for hours. I hit the walls and cried why???”
Imagine how shocking it to see a fully formed, fully developed baby when you thought you aborted a piece of tissue.
