I've been worried because 6 years ago my husband & I had to terminate our first pregnancy at 19 weeks, because the baby lost all her amniotic fluid, the placenta had problems and I was bleeding badly. We were told that the baby had no chance of survival and that if we didn't terminate, I could die because I was bleeding so much. We chose to terminate the pregnancy.
I am scared of going to Hell for this. I hear about the unforgivable sin being blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Do you think I've committed that sin?
If I understand the sin of blasphemy against the holy spirit correctly, you have not committed it. I believe that this sin refers to rejecting the truth which the Holy Spirit gives you (see John 16: 7-13).
My advice would be to talk to your pastor about this and decide if it is something that you need to bring to confession. It sounds as though your baby may have already been dead at this point. Your pastor will be able to give you wise counsel, in any case.
My heartfelt condolences at the loss of your child.
