Woman tells how an abortion was “supposed to fix everything” yet with every subsequent pregnancy she “saw her aborted baby in their eyes”

By Sarah Terzo

One woman’s story about her struggles after an abortion:

“While in recovery I asked why I felt so sad. Would it go away? They told me it was relief from all the pressure that I had been under. They gave me something for pain and I fell asleep, crying. I woke up hurting and bleeding heavily. My mom was there. I heard girls crying. I started crying. I slept most of the way home. The abortion was never talked about again. It was like it never happened… The abortion was supposed to fix everything, but it broke me instead. My body was never the same after the abortion… With every pregnancy I went through, I saw my aborted baby in their eyes. I was full of wonder. I was also as pro-choice as you could be, very angry at the ones trying to tell women what they could or couldn’t do with their bodies. That anger and viewpoint validated my abortion. I have searched on the Internet for others who had had abortions.

“I wondered if I was the only one hurting like this. I found Silent No More Awareness when it was just starting out. It was the first time I realized I wasn’t alone. I wasn’t crazy.”
