As a well educated woman, I am shocked that I was never really aware of all the facts regarding abortion. I believed the American lie, just get rid of it, never understanding that it truly was a life. I lament now because I encouraged my younger sister while she was attending law school to have an abortion. My words exactly, "either you kill it or it will kill you". Well, she graduated from law school in 1992 and has never really been able to practice. For years we all thought she was nuts! My poor sister has been a cripple since she decided to terminate her pregnancy and lose her child to death. She is now in AA, holding down a very low functioning job, living in a slum and has been completely lost since her third year in law school. I not only lost a niece or nephew, I lost my sister too. Abortion not only kills children, it destroys women too! The big lie that this will give women freedom, don't believe it... Not a day goes by where I don't wish I could take back my words of advice to my younger sister, I pray for forgiveness. But now, I need to help educate the next generation of women and young men, abortion is not a solution! It kills children and women alike.
