i dont know if i should, i found out today that my mum had an abortion and i feel so horrible, i realise why she loves us and cares for us so much, i dont know what to do, i see her in such different view now.
i just i new i couldnt tell anyone around me so i had to tell someone, i cant have this on me, the only one out of four children that knows.
i could of had a big step sis or bro. i was nearly in tht position last yr n i was horrified to tell mum that i thought i was pregnant. i didnt i snuck around her back getting pregnancy tests and what not. i want to sit down with her and tell her i know but i dont know if i should. im just in a horrible way atm, i dont need this to think of on top

Hi there,

Considering that your mom had four children, I think she must have thought long and hard about getting the abortion in the first place. Women get abortions for different reasons. Maybe your mom wasn't ready at the time or thought there would be complications with the child. She might not have been comfortable with the decision either.

I know it's difficult right now, but try not to judge your mom on her past decisions. She is still the same mom now as she was before. Her decisions now are what matter the most.

I am also wondering how you found out she had the abortion in the first place? If she did not tell you, I'm wondering who did.

But if your mom having the abortion concerns you so much, then I think just sitting down with her and talking about it and what her reasons were might help. It might be hard to get the conversation started, but just find some time that you can spend with her just the two of you and go over this.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
