I found out that my mother in law tried to self abort at 24 with a hanger and that’s why my sister in law was born prematurely. As someone who just had a baby at an even younger age, I find it so difficult to look at her the same way. She now takes anti- depressants because she still feels guilt for what she did. I’m not sure how I feel. I feel somewhat sorry for her yet not really because if she had succeeded she would’ve committed murder. It makes me cry that babies actually die like that.
Forgiveness is a difficult thing when it comes to this issue. Please read my post ‘Love Them Both’ for why I think it is important to forgive. It makes me cry too, but we have to be brave and fight viciously to stop viciousness.
The pro-choice crowd is right, women will still seek abortions even if laws are passed to ban them. It will take a culture shift to change minds, to someday have EVERY person on this planet wince with repulsion at the idea of killing their own preborn children.
