Cities4Life wants the “What Would You Say?” posts to be as interactive as possible. Not only is this good practice for thinking on your feet during everyday encounters you might have with people who oppose your worldview, but it is also good training for those who want to do Frontline Ministry outside of abortion mills. And remember, scripture addresses the root of these problems.
“My baby would have been disabled and my husband couldn’t cope with the demands of raising a child with special needs. He (my husband) was depressed and prepared to leave me and our other children if I kept this baby. I felt it was in the best interest of my two older children to keep our family together, to have their father in their life. I would not have been financially stable on my own, especially with the added expenses of a child with special needs. My husband wasn’t a bad man, a child with disabilities was just more than he could handle.
I had an abortion at 18 weeks, and even though it was extremely difficult for me, (both emotionally and physically) I’m glad I had that option. I made a decision that was best for my family. Still, I do deal with some regret, I wanted that baby very much and I miss him often .”
