About Eva Joy

I had an abortion when I was 16 years old. I did not realize then that the choice was mine: life or death. I knew it was wrong, but I silently went through with it. It was the worst experience of my entire life. Even though I was drugged, I was aware of every stage of the procedure. I would wake up for a minute or two during the different stages of the abortion. 

Later in life after giving birth to twins and then a third child, I knew the truth. I carried the guilt and shame of the abortion with me every step of the way. Abortion changed and shaped me. I hated myself for destroying my own child. I knew that my baby was a girl, and I knew that she would have been slightly older than my own children. 

I want every young woman who is facing this decision to be empowered with facts and to have resources available to help her choose life for her unborn child. I want to provide the support she needs to be able to make wise decisions at this vulnerable time in her life.
