Exposing My Hidden Secrets

We all have them - the hidden secrets we would prefer not to shout from the rooftops. And for many years I have chosen to hide these secrets from most, confiding in only a small few the truth (or sometimes half truth) of my past 2 abortions. Over time I have considered sharing my knowledge of abortion but always come back to the same thought, why?…I don’t profess to be a master theologian, psychiatrist, or medical doctor, so why would anyone want to hear from me? But the truth is I have a personal understanding into the realities of abortions that no doctor who has simply studied the physical or emotional aspects of such a decision could understand. So through this journey I simply want to speak from my heart how the choice of abortion has effected my life, both then and now, so that someone who is considering abortion or maybe someone who is coping with the aftermath can gain some understanding through someone who has been there and done that.
