This case is of a woman who couldn't deal with her abortion and committed
suicide in 1989 - my mom.
[She came to have the abortion through a] family friend.
Once married (not to one involved in abortion), busied herself with raising
seven children - but when husband died in 1987, she went into deep depression -
She went to God, but had spent sixty years believing she would go to hell.
God's forgiveness was hard for her to grasp along with the guilt and shame she
felt. She committed suicide in 1989 telling me to go on with Pro-Life efforts.
This abortion news affected the whole family - especially those who could not
understand her pain. I could. I'd been there. Suicide was not meant to hurt her
children (who she loved and protected), but to get rid of her hurt and pain.
