12 year old incest victim regrets her abortions

A woman tells the following story:

“… At 12 years old, I became pregnant; it was my father’s baby. Mom and Dad forced me to have an abortion…

As I grew up I fell into one bad relationship after another… These men didn’t want me or the babies we conceived together, supposedly under the guise of love. Each of these five men in my life made me get abortions when I became pregnant. They threatened to leave me if I didn’t have the abortions…

I now know that abortion is the killing of a baby. This realization hurts my mind and my heart every time I think of it, and there is not a day or night that goes by when I don’t think of all my dead babies.…

I’m trying to pick up the pieces of my shattered life…”
