Yesterday's Winston-Salem Journal ran an article, Pregnancy-care center observing anniversary, that focuses on a volunteer who recovered from the emotional aftermath of abortion with the help of the center:

In 1987, Donda Toney was a pregnant 17-year-old with one abortion already behind her.

She went to the Salem Pregnancy Care Center intending to have a pregnancy test and get another abortion if she was pregnant again, she said.

"I was very angry and bitter at the world," Toney said.

Instead, she talked to counselors at the center and decided to have the baby, a choice that she said she has never regretted. The center helped her break the news to her parents and provided her with maternity clothes. Her son, Josh, is now 17 and in the U.S. Navy.

Toney now volunteers at the center and runs a post-abortion Bible study group that provides counseling to women who have had abortions and are experiencing anger, guilt and depression.
Someone should have told this reporter that by mentioning the existence of women who regret abortions, all the other women in North Carolina were going to be sent into a tailspin of shame.
