My story......

I was adopted at birth, and reunited with my biological mother in 2008.  It has been an emotional journey, but one that has brought tremendous value to my life.  After knowing only that my biological mother was 16 years old when I was born, I have now learned that there is much more to my existence.              

Beginning at the age of 4, my biological mother was sexually abused by her father.  In her early teens, she became pregnant by her father.  He was afraid this would cause his actions to be revealed, and forced her to miscarry through physical abuse.  Over the next several years, there would be five additional pregnancies between my biological mother and her father, including me.  Of the five children, I was the only survivor.  The four others were aborted to cover up his actions.

In the early 90’s, my biological mother prosecuted her father for this abuse.  He served a sentence of only months due to lack of evidence.  Detectives searched for me, however they were unsuccessful.  He was able to escape the punishment he deserved, due in large to the legalization of abortion.  The option of abortion allowed him to punish innocent children (my brothers and sisters) by way of death. This is wrong in so many ways.  God has a plan for each and every child, including those of us conceived in incest or rape.  To have abortion as a legal choice hurts everyone involved.

  2. Dear Kristi.
    I am so grateful to you for having had the courage to tell you story.
    I am an aborted woman, who had a birthpsychosis after the birth of my 3rd child 5 years after my abortion. It took me years and years to fully understand why I had the birthpsychosis, that it was because of repressing that I had let down my own child.
    I had forgot Jesus and did not ask him for help at the time where I expected my second child, instead I went to a doctor and asked for an abortion. After the abortion I suffered from depression, but did not think of asking for help and did not know whom to turn to and did not know that I was depressed because I was in pain and sorrow because of having had my own child aborted.
    After the birthpsychosis I received psychiatric and psychological treatment for many years, but noone understood that it had something to do with my abortion.
    Eventually I met a woman, a nurse who had been educated by at Canadian psychiatrist Dr. Philip Ney, and she helped me to understand what I was beginning to understand on my own. Or rather that Jesus made me understand, for He never left me or forgot me, but waited patiently for me to have my heart opened and healed by His love.
    So I know from my own experience that abortion hurts everyone involved.
    Thankyou so much for witnessing about that.
    Love from Susanne Westh Larsen.
