I was 21 and had just started seeing this new, wonderful guy. We were trying to keep things casual, but I could tell I liked him a lot.


In 1961 at the age of 19 and still living at home with my parents, I had an illegal back alley abortion and began to slowly bleed almost to death. At that time in my life, I would rather be dead than pregnant.


I knew from an early age that I never wanted children. So MY choice was never difficult for me.

I found out that I was pregnant when I was 29 years old. MarriedĀ for five years, and living with my husband in Stuttgart, Germany (we are both American).
