January 26, 2013 was my very first "Walk For Life." This event struck my heart personally. Why? In 1966, when I was 19 years old I found myself pregnant outside of wedlock. I was going to school at the time, living in the nurse's dorm and fully expecting to become a nurse. I was not planning on getting pregnant, married or raising a family.
When I told my boyfriend that I was pregnant, he then told his buddies who were quick to offer finances to fly my boyfriend and I to Mexico for an abortion.
