Story: "Brooke Shields Was Almost an Abortion Victim: My Grandfather Paid My Mother to Abort Me."


Brooke Shields is a successful movie and television actress.


That must have been scary to find out.


I bet, even heart breaking


Easy to justify it until the person that it’s being done to is a real particular person. Of course it always is a real person, but only those who survive make that clear.


I remember a story a short while ago where a woman was pregnant with twins but had one aborted as she didn’t want twins.

The surviving twin will find that out one day.



Even, perhaps, if no one ever tells her. There is something called the Vanishing Twin Syndrome, where if a twin disappears because of a miscarriage or an abortion, the surviving twin may be strongly affected. Here is one article.
