I Survived Abortion



my name is Claire Cola and I am an abortion survivor and that is how I have been affected which is very rare I was a twin when I was in the womb but today I am still a twin my twin just isn't here I am here to be able to be a voice and a face for the unborn and that is all by God's grace I will speak in honor of you at the age of 20 I decided that I was going to make the phone call to my adoption agency and start a search to hopefully meet my birth mother I received a phone call from her a month later and I visited I had a card for her and on the card what I wrote was thank you for choosing life for me that's the greatest gift I've ever received and as she opened this card what were very very happy tears um began to turn into very sad tears as well and she grabs my hand and she took me into a back room and she began telling me about her life what she told me was she grew up in a family where her parents were divorced she lived with her mother and her mother worked multiple jobs which left my birth mother making very adult decisions for herself as she sought outside for love or fulfillment like many of us do she found herself pregnant at 13 years old her mother said that there was only one thing to do and that day they got in the car they drove to an abortion clinic and my birth mother had a surgical abortion at five months along after having her surgical abortion that day she went home to her I believe eighth grade life she was in gym class with her best friend I believe about four weeks later and her friend said have you been back to the doctor things don't seem right maybe you should go get yourself checked out and make sure that nothing else is wrong and so she had her mom take her back to the same abortionist to examine her and at that moment she was told the most shocking words she had ever heard in her entire life you're still pregnant your abortion was successful but you're still pregnant you were pregnant with twins one was aborted but one has survived and so you're still mothering a child in your womb she was told that her amniotic fluid which is in the sac and which is what holds the baby together and gives the baby nutrients had been broken my birth mother delivered a little baby girl two weeks later and that was me when I was born I weighed 3 pounds 2 ounces my hips were dislocated and my feet were turned in as club feet I had to stay in the hospital for two and a half months I was on life support when I was released I had casts on my feet to correct my club feet and I had a harness on my hips to hopefully correct my put my hips back into place and through the next couple years I went through multiple casts even body casts to kind of form my body back together although it sounds like a horror story and many have said what aren't you angry aren't you upset and I say no because my birth mother is probably my biggest hero because she didn't have to tell me and through her courage and through her strength and her um selflessness people's lives are being changed abortion doesn't just affect one person domino effect and even though that happened it has turned in to something so beautiful God has really taught me to rely on him that this is not about me that it's about him it's about his grace and it's about his amazing gift of life that he has given us even though life looks like a given because we all have it it's a gift he is able to speak through my story and through my birth mother's story through my parents story and share that gift with the world

  1. This is quite a story & this young lady seems very traumatized by it I pray for healing for her & her mother. God bless her for sharing.

  2. some of yall are just mean let me say this I was raped at 14 buy a guy that was obsessed with me and I took medication to make sure I didn't end up with a pregnancy but if I had I would of got an abortion no child should have to feel unwanted I thank God the medicine worked but I do not believe in abortion just cuz your not ready for kids if your not ready for a baby don't spread your legs pretty easy concept

  3. okay listen guys. if you don't believe god then don't. religion is like medicine, if it helps someone, they are free to take it and if they don't want it and don't find it beneficial, you don't need to take it. for you guys to put down this young girl after all she's gone through because she finds that God makes it easier for her to accept what she's gone through, you lack logic and sympathy. Have a heart, don't be a jerk.

  4. I don't in anyway believe in a god. I am a woman < so I defo don't hate women and I don't believe in abortion. I don't need a 2000 year old book to tell me what I feel is right and wrong. To me abortion is a sick and selfish act. It may not be murder in the eyes of the law but that doesn't mean that its right. There are lots of laws I don't agree with. You have a choice, because its your body? So do you feel drugs should be lawful? What about smoking should it be unlawful? Drinking? Should we try and save those who try to take there own life's? I mean its there body's right? There choice? Find your morals! You don't need a bible to tell you abortion is wrong! Lets face it the only reason abortion is even legal is because so many women died trying to "get rid of there problem". A lot of women have and still, abuse there right to abort. Wear a damn condom! it's not that hard. Yes I know there not a 100% but the pill is 99.9% your telling me all the women who have aborted are within this 1%? give me a break. Bullshit. If you can't afford birth control you really shouldn't be having sex but in the Uk its free. That just adds insult to Injury because its so proventable but it happens so often! Jeeze.

  5. 0:24 – If your twin isn't here, you're not a twin.

    Having an aborted twin makes you an expert on abortion?  Who knew..

  6. It's a miraculous story. However, I hate how these "underage and pregnant" stories almost always start with some family issue- divorce, illness, etc. What does that say to teens suffering from these issues? That it makes them destined to do bad things? That their problems shove them into a box of regret and mistakes? Every one of these stories eventually indirectly leads to another one.
    As I said in a rant I wrote several weeks ago, "I’m pro-life because having family problems is actually used as a risk factor for teenage pregnancy. I’m pro-life because teenage girls with family problems are not helpless. I should know. I’m one of them."
    Instead of repeating these kinds of stories (not this one, since this is clearly a miracle story and one that advocates for life, not death in the name of "choice"), teach girls who are in these situations that they CAN be led into the light and are not bound by the mistakes of the past. It took months for me to figure that out for myself, but somewhere out there, there's a girl like me who'll never know.

  7. We fight for the rights of those who cant fight for themselves.
    If you walk down the street & someone is beating a person, do you intervene?
    We in society help those who need help. We value life. Not just pick and choose which lives are more deserving.. just like liberals want us all to have our guns taken away. Yet its the conservatives who will take care of the situation if theyre able.. we don't run thru a mall or a school and ask questions or only help Other Conservatives.. we help everyone

  8. It amazes me that those who have been given the gift of life could deny that opportunity to another <3
    think more !

  9. If she decides to abort she has the right to, without being hounded by some fucktard christians.

    Your reasoning makes no sense at all. You are anti woman and anti human rights.

  10. Rape is a tough line to cross when it comes to abortion. Here's the thing though, does the child deserve to die for the wrong doing of someone else? The mother should get rid of the child because something was done to her? It's tragic, traumatizing, but we have enough people in this world, dying for another's decisions.

  11. Inconvenience is the most commonly used word in a society of narcissists. You chose to have sex, you created a child, now you have to own up to your mistakes, and deal with the consequences. You're not that special that you have the right to get rid of someone else, regardless of whether or not it's in your womb. It's not YOURS to kill, just like It's not a mother's right to burn her child's hand's on a frying pan when she's had a bad day. Have some self-worth and own up to your mistakes.

  12. Yeah, and it's a man's right to discipline his wife in saudi-arabia, and they support that as passionately as we support a woman's right to have a doctor stick a set of medical pliers up her vagina, and tear the babies limbs and body-parts off piece by piece until it's dead, regardless of the pain it feels, for the sake of the mother. My God I can't understand why people are so blind.
