A Message from Eva Joy:
I had an abortion when I was 16 years old. I did not realize then that the choice was mine: life or death. I knew it was wrong, but I silently went through with it. It was the worst experience of my entire life. Even though I was drugged, I was aware of every stage of the procedure. I would wake up for a minute or two during the different stages of the abortion. ??Later in life after giving birth to twins and then my third child, I knew the truth. I carried the guilt and shame of the abortion with me every step of the way. Abortion changed and shaped me. I hated myself for destroying my own child. I knew that my baby was a girl, and I knew that she would have been slightly older than my other children. ??I want every young woman who is facing this decision to be empowered with facts and to have resources available to help her choose life for her unborn child. I want to provide the support she needs to be able to make wise decisions at this vulnerable time in her life.
