Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Who Advised Her?

I don't know who advised my daughter to do an abortion but whoever did that must be cursed because through her advise, she caused my daughter to die in the bed of trying to hide from us that he had got pregnant and also to try to avoid her school responsibility and enable her continue with her school. Her death to me is a major blow in my life and how I wish that she would just have carried the baby and then after nine months give birth the baby and hand it over to me so that I could take of it. but for now it is too late and the person or people strongly blame are those who advised her to go for an abortion.
