Ok people, no one can compel me to read French like the one and only Véronique Bergeron, once ProWomanProLife blogger, now over at Vie De Cirque.
Here’s a little bit from her bio on our site:
Bergeron got pregnant with her first child at 21 while in law school. “As soon as the little line turned blue, it became clear that what I thought would be a no-brainer – abortion — was really excruciating,” says Bergeron. Another formative influence was the complete and utter disbelief of her peers that she would do something so stupid as to “keep” the baby and ruin her professional life. “That’s when I realized that women may have been liberated but liberation was achieved by excluding their reproductive abilities. I advocate for a complete liberation of women that includes the fact that they bear and deliver children.”
This is the birth story of her first daughter. Even if you don’t read the post, please do scroll through the pictures. It’s like a photo-journal. We end with a beautiful photo of her daughter. (This embryo, so irrelevant, well, it became a person. Imagine that.)
Please also note that I scroll through the photos and I see a young Véronique. And I consider myself at 22. And I consider that I wouldn’t likely have had the maturity level or courage to keep the baby. Therefore, no judgment here on those women/girls who do have abortions. Just a sense of wanting more and wishing we had more role models like Véronique.by
