You Looked Sad Today . . .

I saw you today. Maybe you did not know I saw you because I was so busy dealing with my life. Sometimes, I forget to smile or get out of my head long enough to remember others are hurting. Sometimes, I am just at a loss. I am sorry.

I think about the mothers that have aborted their babies and the loss they continue to experience. I think about the lies they were told and how they won't experience the birth of their baby. I think about how the abortion process itself is such a violation. I have read the lies that Abortion clinics write like calling your baby's remain "Products of Conception" instead of a baby. I can imagine you carry a great deal inside you.

As if going to the gynecologist is not bad enough, going to the gynecologist and having your cervix pried open to begin the abortion process is even more invasive. ADr. Levantino describes what the abortion process is like on this Youtube video, He describes the process of aborting a baby and what you must do to abort a baby that is large. Not only did you think this abortion might solve your trouble, you were led to believe regret was just propaganda.

If you are over 26 weeks it will take 3 days for your cervix to dilate enough to pass your baby. At this point, your baby is viable outside of the womb. For three days you will go through seaweed sticks in your cervix and other measures to have your baby come out enough after the abortion is performed. You will feel your baby do his/her final kicks during the waiting.

If you experienced your baby in any manner, and then aborted your baby, I can imagine you might have any number of emotions. It is not uncommon to feel the following: regret, sadness, hopelessness, depression, loneliness, and even other emotions. Sometimes, you may not feel anything till many years later.

I may not know you, I may not have acknowledged you, and maybe I did not even know the secret you were carrying, but I think of the beautiful sculpture I once saw of a woman and a little girl in glass gently touching her mother's head. That image reminds me of the pain that you may carry. There is hope and peace for you. This sculptor, Martin Hudáček, of Slovakia describes his reason for such a sculpture and the message he sends to those that have had abortions.

April 2, 2012 ( - As an art student, Martin Hudáček of Slovakia was moved to create a sculpture to draw attention to the devastation abortion can bring to the woman, and to the fact that through the love and mercy of God, reconciliation and healing are possible. The sculpture shows a woman in great sorrow grieving her abortion. The second figure in the work is the aborted child, presented as a young child, who in a very touching, healing way, comes to the mother, to offer forgiveness.

Martin, who named the work “Memorial for Unborn Children,” said the sculpture also “expresses hope which is given to believers by the One who died on the cross for us, and showed how much He cares about all of us.”
