This would have been our first child, we were so full of anticipation and dreams, but they all died in the doctors’ office today. Test after test was run and finally they came back to us saying “I’m sorry but there is not heartbeat.”
We were sent to a clinic to remove the body of our child; they took my wife away and left me here to wait for awhile. It all feels so cold and impersonal; I just can’t believe this is happening to us. On top of all that the women in here are making me sick, discussing why they are choosing to have an abortion.
The first woman says “I already have three kids; I don’t need a fourth one”
The woman next to here replies “This is my second time here I just can’t handle the financial burden”
The last woman says “I just don’t want children”
Then I wonder how many men like me are made to sit here and listen to all the women who choose to end the life of their own children. I wonder what kind of retribution is in store for them if they never repent of their sins. I wonder why this happened to us when we actually want a child. I feel like screaming at them but instead I decide to say a prayer for my wife and the soul of our child. I also pray for the souls of the children in this room who will go to their maker before their designated day. I also pray that someday I will be able to put aside my anger and pray for the women in the waiting room as well.
