DW's Story

Here's my story:

I am 26-years-old, and just received a Master's degree. I have spent so much time trying to live a good life by preventing pregnancy, that now I'm faced with the decision of what to do if I am pregnant again. I have had 2 abortions in the past, and I am proud to say that I made the right decision for me. I am single, and have no children, and I think it is especially selfish to bring a child into the world - unloved and unwanted. In conclusion, as I type this message, wondering if I am pregnant again my message to the world is - "Think of the Welfare of the Child First."
