Shawna Arnold had an abusive, drug-addicted mother, and became a drug user at a young age.
When she got pregnant at 19, her mother urged her to have an abortion. She wrote:
I was so messed up at the time that I believed the people who said there was no way I could take care of a baby.
The doctor told me the baby was the size of a pen dot, had no heartbeat and wasn’t even recognizable as a person. With my appointment to have the abortion in Saskatoon, I left the clinic. I kept drinking and I even did some drugs, despite knowing I was pregnant…
I had nowhere to turn. I was completely lost and frightened.
I had no strength inside me to quit my addictions, and I chose them over my baby’s life. I was on mushrooms when I was pregnant and had thoughts that I had Satan in my stomach – that my baby was evil. I was a serious mess and needed help, some kind of treatment. I didn’t even know who was the father of the baby I was carrying.
