I had a late term abortion at 27 weeks in August of 2018. I was pregnant with my much wanted third child and up until 25 weeks I was told my daughter was looking great. I was so relieved as I was 35 in in the "advanced maternal age" category. At 25 weeks I went to my doctor for a follow up sonogram to get a view of my baby's heart. That is when my life got turned upside down.


I was 18 in 1968. I had sex for the first time - unprotected because the student health center at my University would not provide birth control without parental permission. When I found out I was pregnant I knew I was not fit to be a parent at that time. I heard rumors of Mexican abortions. Through friends of friends of acquaintances, I found a "clinic" in Juarez Mexico.


I had an abortion when I was 42, going through divorce from a man who turned out to be gay, so I was in a very dark and sad and confused place.
