Jaime, to repent means to change your mind and agree with God:
~acknowledging it as sin against life
~acknowledging that He has done something so that you can receive the forgiveness of sin and have a brand new life in Him.
If you don't turn, you keep going the same direction. If you turn to yourself or anyone else, you get nowhere. Turn to Jesus and trust that His work on your behalf is complete. He takes you straight into the presence of the Father. There is NOW no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit, for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made you free from the law of sin and death. Be free, Jaime. Jesus has already paid the price.

Repent, and be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ so that you may receive forgiveness for your sins.....
Tell God you are sorry you committed murder and you want to turn from your sins which is called repenting. Ask Jesus to forgive you and ask Him to come into your heart and be Lord and Savior of your life.
Begin to read the Bible. You can start with the Gospel of John. Jesus loves you and there's forgiveness at the cross if you repent and mean it.
Find a good church to go to. Grow in the Lord Jesus Christ, get to know your Savior. Fall in love with Jesus and live the rest of your life for Him! He will bless you beyond what you ever could imagine, but remember you must repent first and foremost.

One needs to be mindful that this person came to either the right place or the wrong place for advice. Stick to the subject on what she can do now that she has acknowledged that she feels bad about the procedure.
Listen everyone makes mistakes big small ones many, some always, but the most important thing to know is that as long as we repent of that wrong ask for forgiveness confess to God he said that he is willing able and just, enough to forgive us our sins and save us.

Jamie: We have no way to change the past
Thus, the only thing for you to do is to ask for God's forgiveness (abortion is not right, whatever else different people may call it, I will just say it i snot something God wants) and then move on
God desires that we look forward, not back

-Friendly_Blogger: your comment about 'legal' is correct
BUT you must remember that 'legal' does not automatically mean 'morally right'
Please respect the woman's feelings here
---peter3594 on 6/28/10|
Jaime: I understand that you feel bad. Most women do. You are not alone, there are many women in the Church that have been where you are.
I believe you should find a women's Bible study and learn scripture in a safe environment of believing women. I also find that a Christian mentor, an older, mature woman, can help tremendously. Finally, a good, Christian therapist can help you work through your grief and guilt as well.
Scripture says that if we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, we can obtain forgiveness. 1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, He will forgive our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Friendly_Blogger, you are SO WRONG!! abortion is murder..if these babies was not a live, they would not grow..and answer this, why do doctors tell women whos baby has stopped moving and growin that the are dead, and born still? Well let see..because they are ALIVE
---a_friend on 6/27/10|
Friendly Blogger --- How do you know that Jaime's Dr. thought an abortion would be "best" for her?
The more usual thing is that the pregnant woman thinks it would be "best" and the physician can see no harm in it.
She feels guilty because she knew that she was carrying within her, another human life. She may have even felt it move. Your theory,
and it is a flawed one, that// Life begins when a child is born and takes it first breath of air and not until them, would be disputed by many a mother!
In any case, Jaime needs to deal with the feelings she has...not just try to convince herself that the feelings are unfounded.

You had two lawful clinical medical procedures that you needed, there is no reason for you to have and remorse associated with the procedures. Life begins when a child is born and takes it first breath of air and not until them. Abortion is not murder Abortion is not killing it is just a elective medical procedure that you and your physician thought was best for you at the time.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Jamie this is more than just a verse, it's a promise from Almighty God.
God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

Ask God for Forgiveness. Cry for your unborn children. Tell God to tell them that you are sorry for what you did, and how much you love them and regret what you did.
---amand6348 on 6/26/10|
What do you mean that she has already forgiven? she said she committed a sin and feels bad and don't know what to do, not that she asked for forgiveness and don't know what to do.
First of all it is good that she acknowledge that she did wrong, now she should ask Christ to forgive her for what she did, recognise his as her personal saviour ask Christ into her heart baptise and make it up in her own mind to follow Christ. The she can be fully forgiven and then the rest applies.

love yourself, peace

---Jaime The Lord Jesus Christ has paid for your sins (abortions and all other sins) at the cross. It is for this reason that you and I will be praising the Lord Jesus Christ for all eternity. For he is worthy to be praised!!! Be comforted in the knowledge that you are forgiven!!!
---mima on 6/26/10|
Jesus loves to forgive this.
There are also support groups for women who have had abortions and later regretted it.
You could also consider being willing to share your experience with women who are on the verge of making the same mistake.
---Cluny on 6/26/10|
you do not have to blame yourself ,for the bible clearly says there is now no condemnition for those in christ jesus,forget about the past you are already forgiven,the bible says jesus is just and faithful to forgive us our sins.
---jika on 6/26/10|
One thing the bible assures us of is the forgiveness the father offers us through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. He says in 1 John 1:9 that 'if we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness' That's the reason for which Jesus came, to show us the father's love. No matter what may have happened, his love is able to reach you and make you whole again. If you have confessed this sin, then rest assured in His forgiveness and be free from self-condemnation in Jesus' name. Remember, you are loved...
---Sabina on 6/26/10|
Jaime, Jesus has already died to secure forgiveness for you. Receive His forgiveness and then forgive yourself. Don't hold against yourself what He doesn't. There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. Receive His love and forgiveness by faith and let Him heal your broken heart.
---Linda on 6/26/10|
"I had two abortions and now I feel really bad. What should I do?"
Jaime, forgive yourself, learn from your mistakes, and move on.
The past can not be altered. The children are in the Father's loving care, and will eventually experience life in a much better place and time.
It was 'your' loss, perhaps one day you will truly understand that, and perhaps, that understanding will help you to become the kind of mother, if you are again granted that privilege and opportunity, that will truly be a blessing in the life of a child.
