Role playing addresses seriousness of abortion

Felicia Pregnant: Hello, Ted I have bad news.

Ted Terminate: Whatís wrong honey?

FP: I am pregnant.

TT: Are you sure?

FP: Yeah! I am sure.

TT: What are you planning to do?

FP: I need your help in raising our baby.

TT: What? I have so much to do. It was not supposed to happen this way. You know what you need to do?

FP: What?

TT: You need to terminate the baby.

FP: You are not serious?

TT: Yes I am. I cannot be worried about taking care of a child yet.

FP: I thought you loved me and we are going to get married.

TT: I do love you but I am not ready to be a dad.

FP: I am gonna keep my baby.

TT: What would your parents or mine say if they found out?

FP: I donít want to.

TT: How many years have we gone out?

FP: Three years including our engagement time.

TT: You are going to throw all that away because you want to raise a baby? What about us? You have a choice: Itís me or the baby.

FP: How can you be so hard and you say, "you love me?"

TT: If you decide to go with the pregnancy, our engagement is off.

FP: I love you though. I love my baby too.

TT: I love you too but am not going to face the consequences. Itís too inconvenient. We can raise children once we get married. What are you gonna do?

FP: If I lose the baby, I can get pregnant again but if I lose you, I cannot get you back. If my parents find out, they will never forgive me. I donít want my parents to find out too. I am gonna terminate the baby.

TT: You can set up an appointment with the doctor. I will see you later.

FP: Ok!

TT: Hi Felicia. How did it go?

FP: I felt a tugging pain when they ripped the baby out of me during the abortion. But, they said not to worry because everything would be fine. I didnít think much about it.

TT: How do you feel?

FP: Ok, I guess. I am nervous too cause we are getting married soon.

TT: Mee too! I am sorry about the mess we got ourselves into. We should have waited.

Care Christian: Hi Tom and Felicia. Congratulations! You both finally tied the knot. How are you both doing?

TT: It feels great.

CC: Whatís wrong with you Felicia? You seem to be down. This should be a happy occasion.

FP: All of a sudden I feel so depressed as though a part of me died.

CC: What do you mean?

FP: I would rather not talk about it. I want to be alone.

TT: Whatís wrong honey?

FP: I canít believe I terminated my baby.

TT: We can still have children Felicia.

FP: I know but I still feel a void and also feel really sick.

TT: Let me take you to the hospital.

FP: I need to see the doctor about my pains in the stomach.

TT: What happened?

FP: The doctor said my abortion caused complications and I can never conceive again.

TT: I am so sorry to hear that! Oh no, what have I done!

FP: I want to be alone.

TT: I am really sorry honey. Itís all my fault.

CC: Whatís wrong Tom and Felicia?

TT: You see, I forced FP to have an abortion and she cannot conceive anymore plus sheís been really depressed recently after we got married.

CC: Oh no! I am so sorry what you are going through Felicia. You have Post-Abortion Syndrome. It hits many who have had an abortion.

FP: I can never have children again.

CC: You know, there were a lot of consequences I faced too after having an abortion. Things changed after I started my life with God. The consequences have not disappeared but He even allowed me to adopt a wonderful baby.
