Abortion Insights

Ali’s questions

This post is inspired by 2 question from Ali who asks The Council for insight into a recent abortion.

Ali had an abortion in her 20’s that’s never troubled her. Now she has an amazing daughter. She found out she was pregnant again recently and had an abortion because she felt afraid and stuck and couldn’t see another way out.

Ali says she doesn’t understand why she experienced so much dread and misery around this pregnancy and once it was over she felt sadness, loss, and regret. In her response to a different post Ali says she believed indecision played a part in her abortion, and she wonders how a decision that felt so right before could feel so wrong after.

The Council says Ali had many choices how she’d handle her situation, but mainly she desired freedom and the abortion was how she accomplished this. They point out that indecision wasn’t a factor; Ali was quick to terminate the pregnancy. The feelings that came after are because she experienced a loss and they remind her that this is growth.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all of their guidance.

  1. Dear Ali. Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. We’re glad to hear you’re feeling better. It sounds like you’ve learned a lot in a short time. Letting go of judgement is a big step.

  2. Dear Bob & Cynthia & The Council,

    Thank you so much for answering my questions. During the time I had between my initial question and this post, I have started feeling much better. I read more posts on your site and was able to feel a deep love and gratitude for those two souls. I still feel sad that I couldn’t feel that for them before the abortion, but I can see that I have learned so much by going through this. In this process, I let go of any judgment I may have had toward abortion at any stage of pregnancy. I felt that I could not possibly have more love for another child besides my daughter, but now I can see how love expands. It has also made me acknowledge how negatively I feel about my marriage, and I am trying to re-frame that feeling into a more loving one thanks to your site… I also had the thought that “feeling regret about a decision does not mean it was the wrong decision.”

    I have to agree that freedom is what I was seeking. I am very relieved that my father was not being kept out of my life in some way and that those souls and I are free to choose another path. Adoption is something I may consider in a few years. That is an idea I’ve always had in the back of my mind, so I am glad to know that I do not have a little soul hanging around wanting me carry and birth it at this time.

    Again, thank you for all that you do. I found your site in a late night search when I was in a very bad place about the abortion. I find that the Council’s overall message resonates with me more than Abraham. It is basically the same, but your’s seems to have more of a focus on love and learning than “things” that I appreciate. Anita Moorjani’s book Dying to Be Me echos the messages that the Council is giving. It is so nice to hear the same ideas coming from multiple sources. It reaffirms it for me.

    I have more questions on other subjects, but want to read the entire site to make sure I’m not being repetitive.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
