I had an abortion-----
At the age of 20, I found myself pregnant. I knew in my heart I could not bring a new life into the world I was in. In Portugal abortion was illegal. I was fortunate enough to find a midwife that performed illegal abortions. I was also very lucky that my family did not find out. If they had found out, they would have forced me to carry the pregnancy to term by locking me up. I know my decision to have an abortion brought me closer to my higher consciousness. I know if I had a child without freeing myself first from the vicious circle I was in, it would have gotten me deeper in the vicious circle, and I would have taken an innocent child with me. I would have gotten further away from my higher consciousness. I would never have had the opportunity to leave Portugal, where I would never have gotten the information I needed to free myself. I always knew in my heart in order for me to become free, I would have to leave home and Portugal. I would like to share with you this answer Dr. Deepak Chopra gave to a questioner on his website:
Question: What do you think God feels about abortion?
Answer: God's feelings about abortion can only be known to us from the level of our own God responses. If we are focused upon the Reactive Response, then God's view of abortion to us will be according to laws of judgment and righteousness. When we have achieved unity with God in the seventh stage, we can know what God feels directly. In this stage one knows the truth of life beyond the boundaries of time and physical body. Action and behavior is not seen as good or bad, it is seen as various expressions of one unbounded field of consciousness, existence and bliss. Any action or human choice is evaluated in terms of whether it brings you closer to this awakening of unity with God or not. That can only be determined by looking within someone's heart, not by looking at their behavior. I don't think God supports certain politics or other human beliefs and dislikes others. Abortion, like any human action or decision can bring one closer to God or not. It's not the category of activity that determines whether it brings you closer to God, it is the love in your heart. If we need to specify what God's feelings are, we could say God feels joy and love for those actions which lead to closeness to the divine and compassion and tolerance for those actions that don't.

Also in her article "PROTECTING LIFE AFTER BIRTH" Dr. Alice Miller Says: "To force the role of a mother on a woman who does not wish to be mother is an offense not just against her, but against the whole human community, because the child she bring into the world is likely to take criminal revenge for its birth, as do the many (mis)leaders threatening our lives. All wars we ever had were the deeds of once unwanted, heinously mistreated children. It is the right to lived life that we must protect wherever and whenever it is threatened. And it should never be sacrificed to an abstract idea.
Not everyone is capable of thinking in real, concrete terms. Many seek refuge in religious beliefs. In their weakness, they place their trust in “relics,” awaiting salvation at the hands of one stronger than themselves. Anyone who claims to be a strong and knowledgeable authority for such people, and to be acting on their behalf, has the duty to be conscious of the appropriate facts. If they aren’t, if they ignore or neglect that duty, clamming instead that their palpable lack of information and their abstract conceptions of “life” are sanctioned by God and practiced in the name of humanity, they are acting against life, by misusing the weakness and trust of the faithful and dangerously confusing them. The injunction against abortion goes even further: Consciously or unconsciously, it represents support for cruelty against children and active complicity in the creation of unwanted existences, existences that can easily become a liability for the community at large."
