Fox News reports:

Musil, now 45, had her first abortion at 19 because she was too frightened to admit her pregnancy to anyone – including her then live-in boyfriend….

But terminating the pregnancy caused her so much pain that she tried to cover it with “drugs, alcohol, partying and a promiscuous lifestyle…”
That lifestyle led to her second pregnancy – and subsequent abortion – just before she was due to serve a jail sentence for a drunken driving conviction…
“The world tells me that it was only a blob of tissue, but my heart tells me otherwise,” Musil said. “The grief often times was more than I could bear.”

NightLite Christian Adoptions Exec. Dir. Rod Stoddart states:

… [I]t’s not possible from a legal standpoint, because there’s no birth certificate and no child living now to be adopted… but from an emotional standpoint, there’s no reason why we could not do an agreement between them where he would adopt those children and give them his name.
I feel it’s given them a lot of comfort. It’s something they’re in together now.

A memorial to be erected in Riverside, CA will include the names of Musil’s aborted children: Alicia Anne Musil and Vincent Matthew Musil.
