I had an abortion when I was a teenager. I don’t remember the day. I don’t mourn the loss. I know that if I had kept that pregnancy, I would have married the father. If I had married the father, I would have been tied to him, even if we eventually divorced, through our child, for the rest of my life. He was abusive and uneducated. I probably would have killed myself by now.
I have a husband and 2 great kids now, that were planned and wanted. This never would have happended if I had not had an abortion when I did. I was too young to be having sex, let alone having a baby.
No women, or child, should be forced to have a baby as punishment for daring to give in to her sexual urges, especially in a culture that constantly glorifies sex.
