I have worked with numerous women who have had abortions and many of them think about and regret that particular decision every day of their life (even after 30+ years).
That is what I encouraged her to do. She suffers from PCOS so getting pregnant may not be easy. The young man said he'd support her regardless her choice. His mom was a young mom (now 44) and I'm 42 with a 10 month old and 3 year old. They would have support. But I do understand it is her choice, but she made it and found out the same day. I fear she may regret her decision someday. I grieve for me and part of me is angry that she was careless enough to have this happen. She figured she didn't have to worry because of the PCOS. I know it's her, not I that lives with the consequences so I am not pushing. I really just wish I didn't know! Posted via Mobile Device
