Wichita, Kansas – A woman who had recently experienced a late second trimester abortion at a well-known abortion clinic contacted Operation Rescue over the weekend and shared part of her story. She immediately regretted her abortion and has begun the process of seeking forgiveness and healing.
While the abortion cartel would like women to think that once they have an abortion, they will experience relief and a better life, those who have experienced abortions, like the woman who contacted us, know better. The grief and remorse felt by many post-abortive women is painfully real, no matter how much some want to deny it.
Although we cannot share this woman’s identity or details of her ordeal yet, we are posting below her heartfelt letter to her deceased baby. We are doing so at her request with the hope that someone, somewhere will read it and realize that abortion is not the answer to the challenges that arise in life.
We applaud the courage it took this young lady to write this letter and her willingness to share it publicly. Women like this, who can admit their mistakes and are willing to share their remorse so openly for the benefit of others, deserve our respect. We pray that God will use this tragedy to save lives and prevent other women from suffering the same tragedy. We ask our readers to join us in praying for this woman, that she could continue the healing process and be completely restored. We also ask for prayers for the abortionist involved, that he would be held accountable for his actions, find repentance, and leave the abortion business for good.
For those who may be pregnant and considering the possibility of abortion, we urge you to contact the Option Line for practical, life-affirming help in your community.
For those who may be experiencing the emotional pain of having had an abortion, we recommend Rachel’s Vineyard or Silent No More for assistance in post-abortion healing.
For those who may have suffered physical injury due to an abortion, we ask that you contact Operation Rescue at 316-683-6790, or e-mail us your story at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is the letter from the woman to her baby in full and without edits.

Dear presley; I know i never got to hold you in my arms as a baby should be. I wanted you so bad but I was thinking all wrong. I thought that this would be best choice in my life as everything crumbled. Then came March 3 2013» the day you became a angel. I took your life, I do regret, I often wonder just why i did…but i just cant explain at all. I messed up; I would have loved to be your mommy and my daughter Isabella would have loved to be your big sister. You were a gift from god and ripped away by man. I wont ever forgive myself. I want to so bad go back and change things & bring you back to life! I took your life. I do regret. I never got to see your beautiful face, or hold your tiny little hands but I will never ever forget you. Love always : mommy
