“He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3
As part of your recovery, it may be important for you to see what was hidden from you at the time of the abortion. During the consultation, the medical professionals gloss over the details of what happens to your baby’s body. Not knowing the truth can make it hard to find closure.
Seeing these images might make sense of the deep pain and loss you’ve felt as you see what really happened during the abortion.
If you underwent a surgical abortion, you will have been under sedation during the procedure. You might not know if your baby was a boy or a girl. Your baby was taken from your womb by force and it’s difficult to think about how they died. As you look at the pictures now you can see the truth.
As a mother you may be horrified at what you agreed to. Your baby is beyond all pain and suffering, and now the most important thing is your recovery. Make their little life count, don’t let your story end, “After the abortion my life went downhill.”. Instead it is possible to change to, “I recovered after the abortion and my baby’s death meant so many other lives were saved from that same fate.”.
