Women find freedom from abortion's guilt
It was nearly a year ago that Missy Reigel stood in front of hundreds of people at Crestwood Baptist Church and shared her deeply personal testimony.

"On Thursday, Sept. 19, 1996, I had an abortion," she told the Kentucky congregation.

Reigel shared about how she struggled to put God first in her life as a teenager and in college but got caught up in a life of drugs and alcohol, becoming a "slave to my sin."

She recalled getting pregnant during a one-night stand, wanting to keep the baby, but instead becoming convinced by the child's father and her friends that she was "too messed up to have a baby."

Reigel described the abortion as the "worst thing I have ever gone through in my life." She said the pain was excruciating, feeling "as though my very soul was being ripped out of me."

Today, Reigel, 34, uses her story to help other women who have experienced abortions confront their own demons, accept God's grace and forgiveness -- and ultimately, heal.[..]

Abortion is "like the secret sin. It's like the scarlet letter 'A'," Reigel said. "People are afraid to mention it -- especially in the church."
