Category Archives: Electing Guilt

This is a separate category, for moms who either feel relieved to bypass close encounters with life-ending decisions for their children, or who feel guilty about the decisions they made for their in-utero children, including elective abortion.

This site, in no way, supports or promotes elective abortion, and using this site to that end is a direct violation. The brave mothers of these stories wish to educate you, to protect you, and your children, so that you may possibly make different choices than they did, but ultimately so that you’ll make the best choices that you can for you and your children.
