Dear Mommy

I am in Heaven now, sitting on God’s lap.
He loves me and cries with me;
for my heart has been broken.
I so wanted to be your little girl.
I don’t quite understand what has happened.
I was so excited when I began realizing my existence.
I was in a dark, yet comfortable place.
I saw I had fingers and toes.
I was pretty far along in my developing,
yet not near ready to leave my surroundings.
I spent most of my time thinking or sleeping.
Even from my earliest days, I felt a special bonding between you and me.
Sometimes I heard you crying and I cried with you. Sometimes you would yell or scream, then cry.
I heard Daddy yelling back.
I was sad, and hoped
you would be better soon.
I wondered why you cried so much.
One day you cried almost all of the day.
I hurt for you. I couldn’t imagine
why you were so unhappy.
That same day, the most horrible
thing happened.
A very mean monster came into that warm,
comfortable place I was in.
I was so scared, I began screaming,
but you never once tried to help me.
Maybe you never heard me.
The monster got closer and closer as
I was screaming and screaming,
“Mommy, Mommy, help me please; Mommy, help me.”
Complete terror is all I felt.
I screamed and screamed until I thought I couldn’t anymore.
Then the monster started ripping my arms off.
It hurt so bad; the pain I can never explain.
It didn’t stop. Oh, how I begged it to stop.
I screamed in horror as it ripped my leg off.
Though I was in such complete pain, I was dying.
I knew I would never see your face or hear you say
how much you love me.
I wanted to make all your tears go away.
I had so many plans to make you happy.
Now I couldn’t; all my dreams were shattered.
Though I was in utter pain and horror,
I felt the pain of my heart breaking, above all.
I wanted more than anything to be your daughter.
No use now, for I was dying a painful death.
I could only imagine the terrible things
that they had done to you.
I wanted to tell you that I love you before I was gone,
but I didn’t know the words you could understand.
And soon, I no longer had the breath to say them;
I was dead.

I felt myself rising. I was being carried by
a huge angel into a big beautiful place.
I was still crying, but the physical pain was gone.
The angel took me to God and set me on His lap.
He said He loved me. Then I was happy.
I asked Him what the thing was that killed me.
He answered, “Abortion.
I am sorry, my child;
for I know how it feels.”
I don’t know what abortion is;
I guess that’s the name of the monster.
I’m writing to say that I love you and
to tell you how much I wanted to be your little girl.
I tried very hard to live.
I wanted to live. I had the will,
but I couldn’t; the monster was too powerful.
It sucked my arms and legs off and finally got all of me.
It was impossible to live.
I just wanted you to know I tried to stay with you.
I didn’t want to die.
Also, Mommy, please watch out for that abortion monster.
Mommy, I love you and
I would hate for you to go through the kind of pain I did.

Please be careful.

Baby..

  4. Wow that was very sad it made me cry. I will never give my baby up that im having soon even though it was by abusive guy. This poem really made me cry :(

  5. I can honestly say this made me cry. I have had an abortion and to this day I am reminded of it. I am NOT proud of it but it had to be done. I can agree with some of you. I was soo against it until it happened to me. I was with the classic abusive guy, I was no where near being ready to be a fit parent. Yeah there is adoption but that’s just as hard to do. I made a very adult decision and I stand by it. The man I was with at the time had mental issues and that would have been passed onto the baby. As I said I am not proud of the decision although I do stand by it. Yes I cry everyday and night. Yes I have nightmares about it but in my eyes and my close loved ones I did NOT kill my baby. I send my condolences to those who need to live with this decision as I have. But know you are not alone and in some situations it is what is right to do.

  6. I was 16 when I found out I was pregnant, I had no idea what I was gunna do with a baby. My dad was so pist when he found out, he wouldn’t even talk to me. My mom was dissapointed in me because I had ruined her trust, I never considered having an abortion because I knew that this baby was a gift from God. My dad eventually got over it and started talking to me again and my mom also got over it. Needless to say my son is nearly 3 years old, he has a brother that is 1 and they have a sister on the way. These children make my life worth living and I couldn’t imagine not having them.

  7. Weeks 1-4 Gender is determined immediately during fertilization. Nervous systems start to form creating a foundation for your childs thoughts senses and feelings. Heart and circulatory systems also start forming.
    Week 5 Your babies heart beats for the first time. Their blood starts pumping and organs begin to develop.
    Week 6 Your babies brains growing. Lenses of the eye appears and nostrils are formed.
    Week 7 Elbows form. Fingers start to form. Feet start to appear with tiny notches for toes. Ears, eyes and nose start to appear and teeth are starting to form under the gums.
    Week 8 Your babies bones and cartilage start to form. Tongue begins to develop. Fingers and toes have appeared but are webbed and short.
    Week 9 Your babies beginning to move. Their joints are formed. And your baby will curl their fingers around things in the palm of their hands, like the umbilical cord.
    Week 10 Eyelids fuse shut and irises begin to appear. The most critical part of your babies development is complete and he or she is headed toward rapid growth.
    Week 11 Nearly all structures and organs are complete and starting to function. Fingers and toes are separated and fingernails and hair start to grow. These tiny little hands and feet are about the size of your own thumbnail.
    Week 12 Your babies vocal cords are forming. Their eyes begin shifting closer together and ears move to their right place on the side of their head. Your little ones liver starts functioning. 
    This is a babies development the time it’s legal to have an abortion. They have a brain, heart, fingers toes and fingernails. They can move their hands and feet and even grasp things. How is this not murder. How is it justified. A baby is a gift and should have the chance to live and grow. One of the parents having mental disorders does not mean that precious innocent child will too have them. That’s like saying people with dwarfism will only have children with dwarfism. Abortion is murder no matter how you put it. There are no excuses for it.

  8. Wow! Oh my goodness. Whoever wrote this, I admire you- deeply. My mom told me a little about this poem but I never imagined just how deep it was. I know one thing for sure, If I ever get pregnant, I’ll never get an abortion. I would never put a precious baby through that. It’s so sad, so horrible! How could anyone ever do that? I despise abortion, and nothing will ever change my point of view there.

  9. Whoever gets an abortion, u r wrong. I don’t care wat u say or how much u regret it. It’s WRONG! you should be ashamed of yourself and never stop praying 4 forgiveness.It’s HORRIBLE! iF you were irresponsible enough 2 do it- no matter what the circumstances are- you should have the consideration 2 at least let your baby live. Don’t just kill it because “adoption is just 2 hard” I dont care how hard adoption is, u should b willing 2 do anything 2 care 4 the baby that u so naivly created. and, I AM RIGHT! and so is this poem. Everyone should be against abortion- against the murdering of babies.

  10. I am trying to write a report about an abortion poem, who was the author of this poem?
