I Am A Christian Too

And I have had an abortion

I am a Christian too
I believe in a God that loves me

I believe in forgiveness

And I had never carried so much shame until
I aborted my child
At the age of 16

A baby myself

Do you think that women and girls
Just stand in line at the abortion clinic like it’s some
Kind of party

For sinners
For women who just couldn’t
Their earthly desires

While you sit back
And judge us

Take a minute
To find some grace
To find some humility

Try to understand
That we didn’t all grow up
In homes that were safe

Sometimes getting pregnant
Is the wake-up call

We need to change our
Lives for the better,
