I thought of my child as a “bunch of cells”
By Sarah Terzo
One woman who had an abortion knew that she was pregnant with a child, but tried to convince herself it was just a bunch of cells:
“My whole world fell in around me as I tried to make the hardest decision I have ever faced. I had always said I didn’t want children. But there was a child growing inside me. My child….I tried every way possible not to think of it that way. I told myself it was nothing but a bunch of cells. It was just an accident I had to deal with.”
Quoted in JivinJehoshaphat.
