Lucie hind site is 20/20 and all we can do at the time is make the choices we feel are the best then. My heart goes out to you. I have a sister who lives with the same guilt and regret, she had an abortion when she was 18 and in college, now she is 42 and has never carried a child to term. She lives with the guilt, that because of what she did so many years ago, that she will never have a child of her own even though the doctors have told her that is not the reason, she still blames herself. Your poem should be on the wall of ever abortion clinic in the country. People look for the easy way out, never thinking what will haunt them when all is done and over with. You have done an excellent job in expressing this. May God bless you and grant you peace, we can't go back...only forward.
