When I was twelve years old my mom told me her abortion story. You can read it in “Ana’s Journey, A Brazilian Mother’s Story of Kidnap, Forced Marriage and Her Botched Abortion” available on Amazon http://tinyurl.com/oujkurr. Although I was only twelve, her experience began to move upon my heart years later. After I finished college in my hometown of São Paulo, Brazil, I met my husband. We got married and moved to Chicago, his home city. The very day I moved to Chicago, I heard a “March for Life” promotion on the radio. I got involved with the local pro-life movement. I volunteered at one of Chicago’s pregnancy centers and that experience resulted in my decision to open Crisis Pregnancy Centers all over Brazil.
