Woman regrets aborting fatally ill baby

Kathy was pregnant with a baby who was not expected to live, and she had an abortion. Later, she deeply regretted it. She says:

“I should have allowed my baby to go to full-term and given birth to it and held her in my arms so that I could tell her that I loved her. I should have believed in her. I didn’t. I should’ve allowed her to go in her own time. I could then have known that I did the best I could for her. In this way I didn’t even give her a funeral. I don’t even know what happened to her.”
