Shannon's Story

A Hard Lesson

I am a woman in recovery. Two years ago I chose to terminate my pregnancy. I was five months along. It was the most horrible experience in the world, and it almost killed me. During the procedure the doctor punctured my uterus and cervix, which caused a blood clot in my stomach. I also suffered edema that led to a fluid build up in my lungs, but the Lord laid his hands on me. I have learned to think twice about the choices I make. I hope other women can benefit from my story and make better, healthier choices.
