Linda Keener Thomas remembers what she was told by the abortion clinic she called. She was pregnant and in college:
“Abortion seemed to be my only choice. It would solve everything. So I called a clinic for information and asked the lady, “Is it a baby?”
“No, honey, it’s just tissue. After all, you want to finish school, don’t you?”
I clung to that statement like a drowning person clutching a life preserver, repeating it over and over until I almost believed it. But deep in my heart I knew the truth that it was a baby, my baby.
