My wife had an abortion when it was 100% certain she and the embryo would die if the pregnancy continued. (1978)
Troubling as it was to deal with that, I NEVER told her the Elders met to decide if she should be disciplined. They kindly informed me that this time they would not. Seeing as she was leaving Pioneering for health reasons, it didn't make sense to remove her only allowed priviledge in the JW org.
At the time this happened, the WT was very clear on this matter, that it was ok.
I was upset then that the Elders EVEN saw a need to get involved when their role should have been one of support.
One Elder mentioned to her a word of encouragement, "its not such a bad thing, with no children, you can do more in JG service." Speaking of a kick while you are down counsel???
I was upset then, the way it was handled. I'm even more upset as I'm typing this. This was over 30 years ago and she will find out today what really happened behind the scenes in the WT org..
