Was an abortion the 'turning point' in Robin Williams' life?
"For the wages of sin is death."
- Epistle Of Saint Paul To The Romans 6:23
Once again Robin Williams was in the middle of a deep depression. His early days back in San Francisco after dropping out of Julliard were among the unhappiest of his life. His [relationship] with his girlfriend, which had seemed so full of promise back in New York, had now come to a sudden and abrupt end. It's interesting to speculate on the reasons, even though Williams himself seldom speaks publicly about it.
In an interview in Playboy magazine some years later, the subject turned to the Bush administration's stance on abortion. Williams agonised about the plight of the poor who would be forced into a terrible dilemma of either having an unwanted child or consulting a potentially deadly backstreet abortionist. Williams offered that making the decision to have an abortion was not an easy one, which begged the obvious question from interviewer Lawrence Grobel about whether he had ever found himself in that position.
'Long, long, long time ago,' Williams replied candidly, 'and it was because we were too young and it wasn't right.'
The period of time between the 1992 Playboy interview and the break-up of his relationship in 1976 would certainly constitute a 'long, long, long time ago.' That being the case, did Williams and the love his life split up because she had become pregnant?
Abortion is one of the anti-sacraments of the humanist anti-religion. Through these anti-sacraments the demonic spirit of the evil one possesses its victims.
Then the demon begins to whisper to its victims that they are now unclean and unworthy of being in the presence of God....
.... the demon does not want its victim to know that God is all-merciful and will always forgive us no matter the depth of our sin if only we will turn towards him in an act of repentance....
.... if only Williams' could have turned to Christ and received Him in Holy Communion....
It is too late for him, but not for those of us still walking in this "valley of tears".

O clement, o loving, o sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
