From a woman who decided to have an abortion. She describes how she came to the decision:
“I take my plight directly to God through prayer. I receive the answer that, having borne 3 children already, I know the gift of a baby. But I can give back the gift if the burden is too great, and it will be taken back into the universe. The greatest punishment I will receive is that which I am already suffering – the knowledge that I will never know this child.
This child, already built to outlast me, will never see the light of day, never be loved by its sister’s and brother, will never learn or marry or have children, never grow old…
My choice was not simple: it was not made out of disregard for life but because of the desire to protect my family. No one loved that incipient child more than I did.”
