A memoir about fatherhood and abortion. Tony’s life changes the moment he learns he’s going to be a father. A casual relationship grows serious and he faces a choice that will ultimately be made for him. Tony tries to persuade his girlfriend to keep their baby but she chooses abortion and Tony blames himself. Did he say the wrong things? Was he just not good enough? Would he ever get another chance to be a father?
Tony’s experience shows that abortion isn’t just a women’s issue, but one that can also affect men in unexpected ways.
A Father’s Choice is published by CreateSpace and is available through Amazon in paperback and Kindle versions.
