Ramesh C. Reddy
Felicia Pregnant: Hello, Ted I have bad news.
Ted Terminate: Whatís wrong honey?
FP: I am pregnant.
TT: Are you sure?
FP: Yeah! I am sure.
TT: What are you planning to do?
FP: I need your help in raising our baby.
TT: What? I have so much to do. It was not supposed to happen this way. You know what you need to do?
TT: You need to terminate the baby.
FP: You are not serious?
TT: Yes I am. I cannot be worried about taking care of a child yet.
FP: I thought you loved me and we are going to get married.
TT: I do love you but I am not ready to be a dad.
FP: I am gonna keep my baby.
TT: What would your parents or mine say if they found out?
FP: I donít want to.
TT: How many years have we gone out?
FP: Three years including our engagement time.
TT: You are going to throw all that away because you want to raise a baby? What about us? You have a choice: Itís me or the baby.
FP: How can you be so hard and you say, "you love me?"
TT: If you decide to go with the pregnancy, our engagement is off.
FP: I love you though. I love my baby too.
TT: I love you too but am not going to face the consequences. Itís too inconvenient. We can raise children once we get married. What are you gonna do?
FP: If I lose the baby, I can get pregnant again but if I lose you, I cannot get you back. If my parents find out, they will never forgive me. I donít want my parents to find out too. I am gonna terminate the baby.
TT: You can set up an appointment with the doctor. I will see you later.
TT: Hi Felicia. How did it go?
FP: I felt a tugging pain when they ripped the baby out of me during the abortion. But, they said not to worry because everything would be fine. I didnít think much about it.
TT: How do you feel?
FP: Ok, I guess. I am nervous too cause we are getting married soon.
TT: Mee too! I am sorry about the mess we got ourselves into. We should have waited.
Care Christian: Hi Tom and Felicia. Congratulations! You both finally tied the knot. How are you both doing?
TT: It feels great.
CC: Whatís wrong with you Felicia? You seem to be down. This should be a happy occasion.
FP: All of a sudden I feel so depressed as though a part of me died.
CC: What do you mean?
FP: I would rather not talk about it. I want to be alone.
TT: Whatís wrong honey?
FP: I canít believe I terminated my baby.
TT: We can still have children Felicia.
FP: I know but I still feel a void and also feel really sick.
TT: Let me take you to the hospital.
FP: I need to see the doctor about my pains in the stomach.
TT: What happened?
FP: The doctor said my abortion caused complications and I can never conceive again.
TT: I am so sorry to hear that! Oh no, what have I done!
FP: I want to be alone.
TT: I am really sorry honey. Itís all my fault.
CC: Whatís wrong Tom and Felicia?
TT: You see, I forced FP to have an abortion and she cannot conceive anymore plus sheís been really depressed recently after we got married.
CC: Oh no! I am so sorry what you are going through Felicia. You have Post-Abortion Syndrome. It hits many who have had an abortion.
FP: I can never have children again.
CC: You know, there were a lot of consequences I faced too after having an abortion. Things changed after I started my life with God. The consequences have not disappeared but He even allowed me to adopt a wonderful baby.
