Seattle (CNN) - One woman raised her hand to share her 40-year secret, something even her 46-year-old son doesn't know. Another spoke up to say she feared that God would no longer love her. A third wept in the back of the room, quietly grieving for those around her.

They were among the dozens of people who gathered on a February evening in a Seattle church parlor to hear from the Rev. Susan Chorley.

The Boston-area pastor had come to talk about abortion -- her abortion.

By speaking about a subject so many deem unspeakable, she'd empowered others to come forward. She says it's always this way.

Chorley, 44, bared her soul about the gut-wrenching choice she never thought she'd have to make. She was a stressed-out new pastor with a 2-year-old son and a crumbling marriage when she had her abortion a dozen years ago.

Wonderful, strong women, who are not ashamed of what they did. I adore each and every of you! It's about time to get rid of the stigma around the abortion! Thanks for the article and video, Exhale. You've got all my support :)
