In the 1920s, my maternal great grandmother became pregnant for the third time. She did not want to raise a third child, so she went to her ob/ gyn, who performed an abortion after my great grandmother promised to never tell anybody else.
I have known at least two other women in my life who had hard decision to make. One chose to have an abortion and the other gave her second child up for adoption. Each woman had a story and had a reason for their decisions and they did the right thing in both.
