Left: Tina Huffman Torry, mother of Heidi.
My mom had an abortion at age seventeen. A couple of weeks later, when her physician examined her, he told her she was still pregnant.
I was born, and today my mom and I tell the world of our story and our love for life. We want to call people away from the darkness of abortion and into the light of God's truth. We have also prayed and demonstrated in front of abortion facilities, and have spoken across the country at churches, crisis pregnancy centers, and universities.
We have also come to know Priests for Life-- I recently told Father Pavone that God has called all of us to save unborn life.
I believe that all young people are survivors of abortion, just like I am, because they too could have been killed under the current policy of our government, which declared us "non-persons" when we were in the womb.
I would like to share something with priests and pastors: Some pastors fear their congregation more than they fear God. Please mention abortion and get a pro-life organization started in your church!
To you pastors who do preach on abortion, I congratulate and I thank you! There might even be some of my friends who are around today because you spoke up for the unborn children years ago.
Note: Heidi is married to Steven Smith. As of the Spring of 2002, she has 2 children and is 24 years old. She's doing what she loves -- Having children and raising them. Tina's book about this marvelous story is called "Short of a Miracle."
