A Moving Picture of Repentance

Andrea Roncato is an Italian actor and infamous playboy who is now, at 80 years old, reflecting on his life choices. One choice that he regrets is one he made with his former partner.

Roncato’s new book includes a poem he wrote to the son whose life they ended through abortion. The poem is called “I Would Have Liked You.”

One section reads: “I would have liked you to be small, so I could hug you.

“I would have liked you to be big, so I could lean on you.

“I would have liked you to be looking out the window in winter, watching the snow begin to fall.”

It ends this way: “I would have liked you near me on the day I must leave this world. I wish I had wanted you, the time when I didn’t want you…”

This is a moving picture of repentance—and it’s also a reminder that abortion harms more than just the ones who die. The ones who must live with their decisions suffer as well.

John Stonestreet is President of The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview and BreakPoint co-host.
