About the Book

Coat Hanger Clinic is a true story of a young boy living with an abusive alcoholic Mother, how he thought the alcohol was bad until he got older and he realized his Mother was a local Madam and she was also performing abortions out of there home.

This book will take you through middle Georgia and how my Mothers brothel was catering to the local Police agencies and local Politicians. After how I reached a certain age and realized what was going on at home, I made my mind up that no other child in the family would ever see what I had witnessed. Young women/girls leaving our house with blood soaked pants after just having an abortion performed, I simply could not take it any more and ran to the Governor of the state and asked for help. Believe me, the local Police didnÕt like the idea I had been to the Governors office, they wanted to take care of me themselves.

This was my fight to remove myself from the surroundings that I lived in. For those who are experiencing something similar you can fight your way out to. We can never give into the idea that we are stuck where we are at and canÕt get out for a better life. I did, you can too.
