Yes, I have spoken to a woman who has chosen abortion. Unfortunately my own mother, who gave birth to me at 17 years old following an unplanned pregnancy, aborted my little sister a few years later after the Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. The same court that ruled that African Americans were not fully human back in 1857. I owe my life to the fact that abortion was illegal in the United States prior to 1973, and I am going to work for the rest of my life to make it that way again.

I am truly saddened that the greatest thing you have accomplished in your life is having killed your own daughter. I only wish you had known about adoption. It is a system by which you turn over custody of your unwanted child to others who will love and cherish them. It would have been the best choice for your daughter. But I suspect you only tell yourself the lie that your choice to kill her was for her own good because it assuages your guilt. Just because something is legal does not make it moral, no matter how hard you try to justify it.
