four month ago, my best friend had an abortion. it was terrible when i heard about it, and she didn't know who she could turn to, at last she turned to me. she said she was alone and helpless, she was just eighteen, she din't know what to do and she finally go to have abortion with her mom's encouragment. however, she felt regret after operation. she cant believe she can be so cruel to kill her own child. she regret what she did, is it too late for her to regret and also what can she do to cover what she done before? or it is unforgiveble?

Well, the way I see it, is what's done is done. It can't be undone, therefore she can't really make up for it because she did take a life. I'm not sure if it is forgivable or not because it depends on your religious beliefs and how strong they are (in my opinion), so I wouldn't really ask on here but rather someone of your own religion. I don't want to be wrong and give the wrong answer but I still want to help so the best I can do is suggest that your friend meet with someone of their own religion and ask a question about forgiveness.

In pregnancy a lady has hormonal changes and she can be confused especially if she has an unwanted pregnancy. Once a lady has an abortion she can't turn the clock back and she might have lots of regret. Your friend is feeling so much regret and she will be unable to forget what she did. I would suggest that she says sorry to her baby that she had aborted. Then she will make sure she never has another abortion in her lifetime. She could get really depressed so you could see if she feels she has been forgiven. Your friend is young and I guess most teenagers can make mistakes sometimes. I hope that your friend will grieve and then learn from her experience of abortion never to do it again. I am pro-life and I wouldn't ever have an abortion.

your friend was too late to regret, she had already done wrong,and she will carry the burden for the rest of her life, unless she will confess it to God and ask forgiveness by heart, i know that God will just forgive her.

regret comes from the fact that it is too late to change what some one has done. She needs to find away to forgiver herself.
