As a woman of faith I believe that women who abort often regret the decision to abort and even experience a form of PTSD. I have been a peer counselor for the Charlotte Pregnancy Resource Center for 10 years educating women considering abortion of all of their options and how each differs. Raise the child, choose to allow this infant to be adopted, surgical abortion procedures and medication abortions. I had an abortion in my 30s and I can testify that I suffered depression and PTSD. It took a lot of self healing to forgive myself for aborting. So I know that even though I was comfortable with my choice at the time, the side effects reduced my quality of life because for 30 years. The time and money I spent to heal mentally was so worth it. I do not judge women who choose to abort. This is something she should decide with her OB/GYN based on her circumstances. 9its between her and God, Higher Power and the Universe. Peer counseling has been my way to give back which just reinforced the work to heal and love me.
