Postabortion woman: Every Christmas I wonder

From a woman who had an abortion:

“My child would be 17 years old this coming Christmas and I wonder with each passing year whether I was carrying a son or a daughter.”

Mary Kenny Abortion: The Whole Story (London: Quartet Books, 1986) 21

Even 17 years after the fact, this woman wonders whether her baby would’ve been a boy or girl. Even though pro-abortion activists argue that women are empowered by their abortions and encourage each woman to “shout her abortion” this postabortion woman is still dealing with the ramifications of her decision 17 years later.
