Another side of abortion

I got this message from David MacDonald, a singer-songwriter. It's a letter to the editor in response to the series of articles about abortion in the Sun.

Dear Editor

I think the other side of the story has to be told. My girlfriend and I chose abortion as a response to an unwanted pregnancy, and it was the worst mistake we ever made in our lives. And it was attitudes like this series of articles that led us to the decision that changed her from a successful medical doctor, who was being considered for the space program, to a post abortive woman deep in depression and a heavy drug user. Nothing she learned in medical school could prepare her for the incredible change that would come upon her after the abortion. It ruined my life also, and cost me my career on Broadway in New York and on the US National tour of Cats, to the emptiness of regret for something that can never be undone. We lost everything, including each other, and our child who was torn limb from limb in a “civilization” that presents itself morally superior to the middle ages. I don’t think a child should receive that kind of treatment for doing nothing more than sucking its thumb. It was 20 years ago and I live with that every day. I found your article very disturbing and traumatic.

Please present both sides of the story.
