Mildred's Story

Florida,  United States
  When I was seventeen years old, I was in a very abusive relationship.  So I decided to go to the Navy to get away without getting my family involved, but then I found out I was pregnant. I thought that if I went through with this pregnancy I would be stuck w/this guy forever. So I decided to have an abortion. My boyfriend at the time begged me not to do it, but I wanted desperately to join the Navy so I can get away from him. So in April of 1988 I killed my baby. I have put this in the back of my mind for many years.  But in the past 1 ½ years, I have been involved w/the pro-life movement at my church and the feelings of killing my baby has come to the surface.  So now I have to deal with them. It has been a very painful process, but I have told my husband and kids and they have been great through the whole process. So now I am ready to share my story with the world.
