Why didn’t I let them take my life instead?
I was pregnant again. I wasn’t planning on having another baby, but I loved being pregnant and being a mom. Then I got sick. The doctors told me I shouldn’t carry this baby to term, it could kill me. I was afraid, everyone that loved me was afraid, including my children. I didn’t know what to do. I had an abortion and everything changed. I wish I had carried to term, giving life to my child, even if it meant I died in the process.
