Remembering Maya Angelou’s prolife testimony

On May 28, famous poet and author Maya Angelou passed away.  Unbeknownst to many, Maya Angelou chose life over abortion.  Feminists for Life has posted an article Angelou wrote for Family Circle magazine in 2001 regarding her teenage pregnancy and her decision to choose life.

I was scared to pieces. Back then, if you had money, there were some girls who got abortions, but I couldn’t deal with that idea. Oh, no. No. I knew there was somebody inside me. So I decided to keep the baby.......

I’m telling you that the best decision I ever made was keeping that baby! Yes, absolutely. Guy was a delight from the start — so good, so bright, and I can’t imagine my life without him.
