VICTIMS OF ABORTION SPEAK OUT
THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE
"THERE IS NO SIN SO GREAT THAT GOD CANNOT FORGIVE NOR
WOUND SO DEEP THAT HIS LOVE CANNOT HEAL"

This letter is in reference to the February 16, 1997  New York Times article entitled "Study Says Abortion Has No Effect on Well-being," found on page A-14.


The argument that "abortion does not trigger lasting emotional  trauma in  young women who are  psychologically healthy before they become pregnant" is a farce.
The difference between women who anguish over their abortions  and  those  who  do  not  is the difference  between the  "walking  wounded"  and the  "living dead."

Prior to having an abortion, many women  (including myself)  had tried to justify our  "choice"  by turning our faces away from the  humanity of our unborn children.  The abortionists  made it even easier for us to choose death for our children by telling us that they were insignificant "masses of tissue."  After abortion, we immediately sensed relief  because  we believed the  propagated lie  that we could  resume our  lives as
if nothing ever happened.

In reality however,  abortion had created in us a series of  traumatic physical problems  (i.e. sterility, miscarriages, perforated wombs, loss of other organs, peritonitis and even death from  "botched abortion" procedures, ect.)  and psychological problems  (i.e. rationalization  and denial, guilt,  regret,  and remorse, low self-esteem, depression, despair, feelings of condemnation, feelings of being exploited,  fear of punishment from GOD, child abuse,  inhibited  sexual desire,  drug/alcohol abuse,  and suicide, ect.).  The truth is, many of us were deemed "healthy" prior to the abortion procedure.  Although many of us are still rationalizing and palliating our abortion experiences,  we  will  one  day  have  to  confront  the  woman  behind  the  mask  of  denial.

In conclusion, abortion may be considered "legal" in our society, but it is definitely neither "safe" nor  "moral;" and to say that abortion does not cause  lasting emotional  trauma in  psychologically   healthy  young  women before  they  become  pregnant  is flagrantly  irresponsible  and  asinine.
