Their Mothers Thought About Aborting Them

My work colleague told me today that his mother almost went through with an abortion when she was pregnant with him. His father and his father’s friends were pressuring her and she even made it to the clinic, but then at the last minute decided against going through with the operation. I asked him how he felt about that, whether it made him feel differently towards her or whether he was angry that she even thought about it. Au contraire, he said that he felt blessed to know that his mother had in fact kept him. He said that after knowing this he always felt extra-special.
