Two Christian women, 18 years and a half-continent apart, faced painfully similar decisions — what to do about the baby.
Yet, a generation later, their work with women and children confronting difficult circumstances has brought them to different conclusions about abortion.
The first woman, Niki Tucker, learned she was pregnant in 1982, only nine years after the U.S. Supreme Court established a constitutional right to abortion. When justices overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, she couldn’t help but recall the choice she made 40 years ago.
Tucker, then 20, faced an uncertain future.
She and her fiancé broke up a few weeks before she discovered she was pregnant. She begged him to take her back so they could marry and raise the baby, but he walked away. Then her stepfather threw her out of her mother’s house.
