I'm Not Whining, But...

At 2:15pm on this date 16 years ago, at the age of 18 and a freshman in college, I had an abortion. Although I am stridently pro-choice, it was not MY choice to end my pregnancy. I was threatened and forced into it.

At 3:15am today, my junkie cousin's 16 year-old junkie daughter gave birth to the baby she and some unknown fellow junkie conceived while they were in rehab. My aunt is a great-grandmother at the age of 58.

Isn't that nice?
