Birth Story: Idaho, USA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 39-year-old woman on February 11, 2013.


I was born in 1973. I was my mom's second child; she was 17 at the time. With her first pregnancy, her parents made her get an abortion. She was six months along. It was a saline abortion. She had to deliver a dead, burned baby. Not too much time went b,y and she was pregnant with me. She only gained 10 pounds during the pregnancy and didn't tell anyone except her brother and his wife about it. I was adopted when I was 2-days-old. Roe vs. Wade holds a whole different meaning for me. She could have had a "legal" abortion with me, but she didn't. I am so thankful that she gave me up to be adopted by a loving, Christian family. That was God's doing. She and I have had a relationship for the past 22 years, and I love her to bits and pieces and am so thankful that she chose to give me life.
