Woman who aborted still has difficulty holding babies

By Sarah Terzo

Carol Jackson had a son before she had an abortion and twin girls afterward. In her memoir, she describes how having an abortion affected being a mother to her twins and made it difficult for her to hold babies:

“I took good care of them and loved them, but I never really allowed myself to enjoy the girls as babies like I had with their brother.

“I’ve also realized that over the years I’ve avoided holding babies, and still generally don’t, except for my own grandchildren. I had an especially difficult time holding my first grandson who was born at 26 weeks, weighing under two pounds.”

Carol Jackson, “I’m Sorry: Recovering from the Right to Choose} (2020) pp.23 – 24.
