Poor-choicer: loves daughter, but wanted her dead

The focus of Christensen’s presentation was the testimony of a woman who said she bore her daughter in 1961 because the law prohibited her from having an abortion.

“It was an extraordinarily difficult time,” said the woman, who wished to remain anonymous. “It changed my life forever.”

The woman even traveled to Mexico in an attempt to bypass the abortion laws in the United States, but she returned home immediately upon seeing the dangerous conditions under which the abortions were performed.

“I am thankful that my daughter is alive and well and happy,” the woman said. “But each and every day I am reminded of the fact that she exists. My life would have been much different if I would have been able to [have the abortion].”

Since her daughter’s birth, the woman has been active in Planned Parenthood, co-founding a program aimed at helping girls better understand how their bodies function.


So the woman--who is anonymous (?)-- loves her daughter, but would have destroyed her in the womb.

She didn't love her in the womb, did she?

The way we deny that the fetus is the SAME BEING as the born person is Orwellian.

It's the same being folks. Let's try to admit that fact of reality. When you abort a fetus, you abort another human being.

I wonder how the daughter feels about almost having been snuffed out.

Maybe that's why the woman is anonymous.
