'Do Not Make the Same Mistake': Heartbreaking Newspaper Op-Ed Laments Past Abortion

Billy Hallowell : Jun 30, 2022

...Op-eds like this show [that] men, too, are deeply affected by abortion...

Christian Cordon wrote about how, when he was in his 20s, he and his girlfriend "mutually agreed" to abort their baby in the first trimester.

At first, he said he was happy about the pregnancy but soon started to doubt their parenting ability.

"Although I had supportive parents who financially were in a place to help me out, the worries of being able to raise a child with my broken life weighed on me," Cordon wrote. "I was not doing well in school, my girlfriend was living with me in my parents' house, and the dynamics between my dad and girlfriend were horrible."

He added, "The messages I heard around me were, ‘You can't have a baby now! Think of your future!' The list of why we were not qualified to raise a child started to get longer and longer."

Thus, Cordon and his girlfriend decided to abort; he drove her to the hospital, recalling the pain and tears surrounding the tragic choice.

He said he continued to have a "risky sex life" even afterward, adding that he didn't actually process what unfolded until years later.

The couple eventually broke up and have not spoken since about the abortion. Cordon, though, didn't forget what happened and wrote his op-ed to help others avoid making the same "mistake."

"Although it still hurts that I do not have the gift of a child in my life, I have experienced much healing through an active search to reconcile this choice," he wrote. "Through sharing my story, I hope that others do not make the same mistake I made."
