    End her pregnancy is a very politically correct way of saying what you actually going to do which is end the life of the child you are carrying ending your daughter or your son's life that's what abortion is ending the life of your child

    The choice of a clean and safe place to take care of an untimely pregnancy is ONLY THE WOMAN'S CHOICE!!!

    I am sorry for your experience but that has nothing to do with Roe V Wade! Those experiences still happen today!

    She is going to hell for the áction she has committed against Gods laws. It’s sad to hear that she had to do that too the poor innocent child. That poor baby had to get the death penalty for someone else actions.

    Your sense of powerlessness?? How about your murdered child’s sense of powerlessness

    Why all this happened? Is she s victim of rape ?! If not she should have taken precautions like condoms and pills or simply don’t have sex until you’re ready to deal with the consequences. The fetus she aborted would have been in his 50s now and might also have a family . However, everything should be legal and safe for women but that’s doesn’t mean leaving other protective measures.

    For goodness sake America Please do not let your next President take you back to the days of Illegal Abortions. This does not sound like the land of the free.

    I understand her, but her words also make me think how many millions of lives we have taken in our own hands. We protect animals lives but don't do the same with the unborn children. Shame on us... And we keep telling ourselves that everything will be OK...

    She's luckier than some. Some went to back alleys and the people used coat hangers. Many died.

    If all of us parents waited to be ready to have kids, to be prepared... none of us would have kids.

    The choice should be there! If one decides that abortion is the choice then there needs to be a safe place for the procedure!!

    And She''ll spend the rest of her life trying to convince herself that she made a good choice- no amount of backslapping will ever cover her pain.

    I am glad you shared this and hope it knocks some sense into the heads of those who would turn back the clock.
