• By Wendy Lyon with Molly A. Minnick, A.C.S.W. Never before has anyone written on the topics of prenatal diagnosis and abortion with such clarity and passion as Wendy Lyon. A mother who learned that her unborn son had a serious chromosome anomaly, Wendy desperately struggled with the decision of her life… to continue or interrupt her wanted pregnancy. After ultimately deciding to interrupt the pregnancy, Wendy embarked on the long, lonely road to healing. Along the way she asked many difficult and troubling questions as she searched for meaning to her son’s short life. One cannot read “A Mother’s Dilemma” without being profoundly touched by Wendy’s words.
