Woman grateful for sidewalk counselling

A 28-year-old Little Village woman who had her abortion halted last month said she is grateful that a "pushy" priest waiting outside the clinic the day she started her procedure offered her and her boyfriend a ride home. The Women's Center put the Tribune in touch with the woman.

"Thank God this man stopped us," said the woman, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "He saved the life of my baby and maybe he saved my life too."

Speaking to a sidewalk counsellor should be considered a "reproductive choice". But feminists want to deny this choice to women. They seem to think the only choices that should be allowed are those they agree with.
