Christian Women’s Conference, woman shares story

One pro-life author recalls a conversation she had with a woman at a Christian women’s conference::

“I met a mother in the spa dressing room at a Christian women’s conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, who had five daughters. She told the story that as a teenager, she became pregnant and chose to abort her first child. As the years went on and her girls grew up, she chose not to share her abortion experience with any of her daughters. Years later, after her girls had grown, married, and had families of their own, she discovered that each one of them had an abortion. Mother and grandmother was heartbroken as she realized that 12 lives were damaged or destroyed because of her silence.”
