A monologue from the screenplay by Mario Puzo & Francis Ford Coppola
Oh, Michael. Michael, you are blind. It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Michael.
Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that’s unholy and evil. I didn’t want your son, Michael!
I wouldn’t bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Michael! It was a son Michael! A son!
And I had it killed because this must all end! I know now that it’s over. I knew it then.
There would be no way, Michael… no way you could ever forgive me not with this Sicilian thing that’s been going on for 2,000 years.
