In 1983 I was pregnant with a girl and even though I loved my son a real lot wanted a little girl of my own. I was told early on before finding out about her sex that my baby may not survive the pregnancy and should abort it. I have nothing against those who would but to me it was a life no matter would happen. To hold that baby is what I wanted as the odds of it being born and surviving were very slim.
So i decide to keep the baby, then finding out it was a girl made me even more determined as I figured if my health was not in danger, it was their decision to leave when they wanted. I did not tell my family about her , only my husband knew as we were leaving a fair distance away from any family. I carried her to a five months and then she gave up. I have never regretted the decision to do what I did , my husband said it was my body and he only wanted to stand by my decision. I went on to have others but never forgot her.
I have been told it was wrong of me to carry a baby that had no chance of surviving, I think and believe that it is a woman’s right as long as it is not hurting her to do what she wants.
