"Seven years ago, I made the biggest bravest decisions I will ever make. I made the decision to give my daughter life...a life that wasn't with me .”
"Mommy to 7 but gave birth to 8. My first child was conceived in rape.”
“I got pregnant at 18 and had him at 19. Was it hard? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely.”
“I have two grandchildren in heaven whom I have never met, never hugged, never kissed, never danced with, never laughed with. As I write this I am now crying. “
“I want younger people to understand how abortion will affect them when they are older. I will be 62 soon.”
"When I told him the baby was my choice and I would never murder my child, he started beating me, trying to get me to miscarry."
"...they said he had several markers for Down Syndrome and that I should abort."
"We decided from the beginning, even if he had died his first day, that we would fight for him. That is what a parent does."
"Choosing adoption is the strongest, bravest, most selfless, most loving thing you could do! Be someone's miracle!"
"You will never regret giving them a chance at life."
"Never in a million years would I regret the decision I made... I changed his life to make sure he got the things I would never have been able to provide. And I gave an incredible couple the chance to be a real family and have the love and happiness that they deserved."
"I don't want to get into much detail because it's still a touchy subject, but I was raped and I knew the person ... I ended up pregnant at the age of 16."
"I was 16 years old. I was given a new name and then I was drugged."
“At the age of 20, I was brutally raped...Then I received news that I was close to 3 months pregnant as a result of the assault. I was terrified."
"I was the foetus that was to be aborted 50 years ago; 3 times aborted but somehow they were not successful."
"During this pregnancy we got news that our baby might have Spina Bifida. My heart felt like it shattered..."
"My wife was conceived in 1973 with the rape of a 12 year old orphan, Gail..."
"It's time. It’s time to share my secret, and I’m full of sadness. It’s been at least 38 years and I still wish I could undo that choice that I made on that horrible day when I killed my baby."
"The only thing I do know for sure is that I was treated very poorly by a broken system that just brought me in, ended the pregnancy and then spat me out again."
"While all around me my pregnant friends were preparing their nurseries, I was preparing her funeral."
