A very great cause to support. When I was 14 my mother told me that she tried everything to cause a miscarriage. She didn't want me. I was the straw that broke the camel's back. All i could do was listen as she told me how i robbed her of her youth, her health and her marriage. I couldnt hate her. And I couldnt blame her. I witnessed daily how hard her struggle was. After my father died. She raised 10 children, 8 by herself and did not seek government handouts. She ended by her confession with an apology and told me I was the best kid she'd got. Im sure the emotional difficulties I have had through out my life are most likely a direct result of those failed abortion attempts. I am adamantly pro life. My refusal to abort my own daughter at 15 has been a cause of personal heartbreak because my daughter hates me and refuses to speak to me because I tried to answer her question about why I gave her up. All she heard was "it ruined my life". She never let me finish explaining what 1968-69 was like for a young unwed mother. Or how emotionally incapable I was to raise and care for her.
