‘I’m a Father of Five … But I Only Got to Raise Three’: Dads Share Their Abortion Stories in Powerful Video

By Will Maule

Ahead of Father’s Day this Sunday, the pro-life organization “Save the Storks” is embarking on a powerful new video campaign, giving post-abortive men a chance to share their heartbreaking stories of how the procedure changed their lives permanently.

The six-part #ChooseFatherhood social video series features four courageous men who are breaking their silence about their deeply personal abortion stories. Over 55 million men have experienced the pain, grief, heartache, and guilt of abortion. Now, they are speaking out.

“This story is best started by saying that I’m the father of five, but I only got to raise three of them,” explains one man.

Others recall the horrific experience of being there in the room when their child was brutally aborted.

“I remember the whir of the motor and seeing these tubes that were being filled with red and white and the sound of suction,” another interviewee says. “It all stopped. The room was silent and they said ‘we’re done.’”

“It was too easy. It was too quick,” he adds. “I wish that someone had been out in front of that Planned Parenthood will just to offer information and alternatives. I wish that there had been opportunities to know about other choices.”

“It was later in the evenings as I would go to bed that I began to cry,” another man recalls. “Even though it had been decades since the first two were lost, obviously still there is an emotional place that comes up.”

Another man describes how he suffered a deep depression following the abortion.

“It didn’t just mess me up, it messed her up as well. Mentally, emotionally. We both started drinking heavily and using drugs,” he says.

Another man shares that he was “adamant” that his girlfriend gets a termination, even offering to pay for it.

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
