My name’s Valerie. I stand here because 25 years ago I first made the wrong choice. …And that is why I am speaking out so that others who are thinking about abortion will not make the same mistake.

When I woke from the suction D and C, I was sobbing. They tried to tell me it was the anesthesia, but I knew it was because I had murdered my baby, and what should have been the safest place in the world, my womb.

I ended up with a staph infection from that “safe and simple procedure”; that led me to hemorrhage, and in and out of the hospital. Then eleven months later they had to take my uterus because of the chronic pain and bleeding. I was only 24.

I found the forgiving grace of God. I asked God to comfort me. The hardest thing has been to forgive myself.
