For all the changes 40 years can bring, the stigma associated with abortion has lingered. Terrell said many clients – not all – carry guilt and shame even though they have carefully and thoughtfully made the decision they think is best for themselves and their families….
A mother of twin 15-year-old boys, Terrell and her husband turned to artificial insemination to have children. When faced with four viable embryos, they chose to terminate two.
Terrell sees both of those decisions – intensely private, a matter for her and her husband alone — as part of the same continuum of services.
