I just found out today that my cousin had an abortion:(. While I knew she was pro choice, I never thought she would get one herself, especially since we have other cousins who were adopted that we love since our Aunt and Uncle were infertile. I’m calling her after she gets off work tonight to see how she is doing mentally and emotionally, especially since she mentioned that she and the father almost had twins together, which suggested that she realizes she murdered her own children. I’m unsure how I should approach this conversation tonight, as I don’t want to alienate her by condemning her for her actions, but I don’t want to condone them either. I was hoping maybe someone with more life experience than I could offer some suggestions on what to say and talk about when I call her. I’m feeling very lost and confused about the whole situation, especially since I’ve only talked to her via text this entire year, and I think if I had at least called her maybe I would’ve found out she was pregnant and convinced her to keep the babies:(
Some quick background about her:
Baptized and confirmed Catholic, but was never really active despite attending Catholic school K-12.
Not sure what her current religious views are, since its not something we ever talk about since I was a hardcore atheist until about a year ago.
I believe she had the abortion less than two weeks ago.
Please pray for the two babies and my cousin as well.
