Post-Abortion Pain and Hurt is Real
One of our staff members had the opportunity to hear Chandra Jarrett share her story of abortion pain and how God set her free from over twenty-five years of sickness, depression and crying caused by her two abortions. She writes about this journey in her book, What I Wish I Knew About Abortion. “I was emotionally paralyzed grieving the loss of my child. Sadness was quickly joined by sickness as my body began to exhibit signs of trauma...Life was not perfect before my abortion but I enjoyed it...After my abortion, I was not a happy person. I was angry, sad, and afraid that God would never forgive me. I felt like I had failed as a student, as a mother, and as a Christian. I changed so much after my abortion that I could barely recognize myself, yet I didn’t know how to change back to the person I was. I would soon learn abortion changed me never to be the same again...I was functionally depressed, simply going through the motions of life...I avoided people as much as possible, hoping no one could see the shame, the pain and regret. I was convinced God would never forgive me for taking the life of my children and I lived as if I had died with them...In time, I would receive forgiveness and healing from Christ in a post-abortion recovery group.”
