I was 13 when I had my abortion. It was 1970 and abortion was just legalized. My father was a pedophile, my mother was and still is a classic enabler.

I moved out at 15 thankfully not with a unwanted child. I was able to enjoy a professional career in customs compliance and global logistics. I have been happily married for nearly 35 years. I have lived with a shame my whole life. Do not let us go backwards for goodness sake, life is hard enough. Thank you.
