Woman in her 80s still mourns for baby she aborted 50 years ago

Published on

Editor’s note. My family will be gone on vacation through August 24. During that span we’ll run prior posts from the past year that remain timely and/or were particularly well-received. We will also add a new story or two as events dictate.

Pro-lifer JD Sharp told the following story:

“Our neighbor was 83 years old, and had been a widow for about 10 years. She would come over and visit my wife, who was a stay-at-home mom, 2 or 3 times a week. She enjoyed watching our 2 children and interacting with them…

Looking back, I remember a particular story our neighbor shared with my wife. Our neighbor wept inconsolably while telling my wife of her abortion. Long before the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe vs. Wade, she had had an abortion during the Great Depression. She had 2 other children at the time, but just didn’t feel that they could afford to feed another child when times were so hard. At 83 years of age this woman was still torn inside over the baby she never raised.”
