My Twin Brother Was Aborted
||Sarah Smith with her mother, Betty. Sarah has forgiven her mother for
trying to abort her in 1970.
BY SARAH SMITH
In 1970, my mom was pregnant with me and my twin
brother, but then she decided to have an abortion. Before the abortion,
we were both in my motherís womb Ė alive and wanting to live. Nobody knew
she was carrying twins.
Itís frightening to think that I was almost aborted
when my mom had a D&C abortion, but somehow, miraculously, I survived!
My twin brother wasnít so lucky. Andrew was aborted and we lost him
My mother deeply regrets that abortion. I know the
pain is unbearable for her at times when she looks at me and knows she
aborted my twin brother. Mom says, ďThe protective hand of Almighty God
saved my life... that Godís hand covered and hid me in her womb, and protected
me from the scalpel of death.Ē Today Iím a pre-med student and a national
pro-life spokesperson. I thank God I survived the abortion, but the pain
continues for everyone in my family. In memory of my brother Andrew, we
bought the gravestone shown.
Please share our story with others so the tragedy
of abortion stops hurting babies and families. Everyone needs to know the
truth about abortion.Ē
