I had been happily married for almost 10 years with 2 wonderful children when I found out I was pregnant.

Turmoil to make this choice! When I truly explored my deepest feelings, separating the fantasy from reality, I realized I didn’t want more children. I love working and I adore spending time with my children, and felt there was no way to do both and keep my sanity while juggling another child. Parenting is a monumental responsibility that should be taken very seriously, for the children’s sake. It was so hard to make that decision while under the hormonal state of pregnancy. Although I felt deep sadness about it, I have no doubt it was the right decision. In many ways, it was the more difficult choice. It made me realize that every situation is different, and women have the wisdom to do what is right for them at that point in time. Legally, I don’t believe men should have any say whatsoever on the matter.
