Silent Screams, Silent Secrets (Texas Abortion Law)

September 1, 2021 Senate Bill 8 too effect. “Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law … a measure that would prohibit in Texas abortions as early as six weeks — before some women know they are pregnant — and open the door for almost any private citizen to sue abortion providers and others Texas “heartbeat bill” becomes law, banning abortions as early as six weeks | The Texas Tribune .”

What Do You Do?

When I watched the news about this new law, my heart began to hurt and cry out for the women who will be put into dangerous, life-threatening situations. At the same time, I was relieved that many unborn lives will be saved. One doctor who was interviewed said he performed 30 abortion a day. More than 50,000 abortions were performed in Texas in 2019. There has got to be a better answer. No one likes abortion and everyone loves choice.  So what do you do? There’s panic and fear all over Texas. Fear of being put into a more dangerous situation if exposed or if the pregnancy is carried out.

Trauma is a severely disturbing, destressing, and damaging experience. The physical assault of rape was horrible enough, however that did not compare to the assault on my psyche and the revictimization I experienced. Preexisting serious health issues magnified because of the attack. My brain went into survival mode. Most days I fought for my life physically, mentally, emotionally and some days I was too weak to fight. No one knew.

What happened to me in those five years after the assault? I died and did not know….
