Morning Has Broken- Real life abortion story

Peace and love to all those women and girls who are pregnant with an unplanned child. Many feel that having a baby would ruin their dreams, affect their lives for the worse, and change everything they have planned for themselves. But I am here to say that though your life may change, you life will not be destroyed.

My mother's life was not destroyed when, at 19 years old, she chose to give birth to me instead of having an abortion as many suggested. They suggested this so that she could start a life free of a physically and verbally abusive relationship, avoid being a single parent, go to college, have a career and get remarried and have children with a man she loved. Though life was not easy for her (whose life is?) she chose to let me continue living.
Now I am 20, older than she was when she had me. She is remarried and has just graduated from college (she went back to school to be a teacher).

Maybe you will say that this is the extreme case and all women will not eventually be able to fulfill their dreams like she did, but I am here and alive to say that it is possible. This little baby is a gift to you and you are a gift to him or her. Your lives flow together...all you have to decide is whether or not you will cut short that life inside you.

To all you girls and women out there who are pregnant, life is not over when you give life to your baby; it's just beginning in a new and different way. Peace.
Since abortion has been made legal in the United states there have been nearly 50 Million abortions. That's 50 million people missing. "Whoever saves one life saves the world entire"~The Talmud
