Sharon McFee had an abortion at a young age. 25 years later, she thought about her abortion while at church and suffered an outpouring of grief and regret:
“I could no longer constrain myself and out flooded a torrent of pent-up grief that had been buried for 25 years. I fell apart at the thought of the ugly sin which I had done.
I had an abortion when I was younger, and I know God has forgiven me, but I haven’t forgiven myself.” I cried in agony at the thought of what I had done to my unborn child remembering my sister’s words “that I would regret it one day.…
I actually hadn’t forgiven myself. All the guilt and pain and denial came pouring out like pus bursting out of an infected wound. It felt like it had been buried in the pit of my stomach all this time. I cried and cried and cried…
If only I could go back in time and undo the greatest mistake I had ever made, but alas, I could not.
