>Ms. Magazine is repeating their 1972 campaign – in their first issue, just so we all know/knew what the actual mission of the publication is/was – to encourage women to brag about their abortions, as shocking as that is to some of us.
At the Bioethics and Politics conference last month, I heard a well known lawyer/”bioethicist” chide the panel and audience for discussing the difficulty and emotionality of abortion.
Hers, too, was the best thing for her. She was in school, hadn’t planned on having a child at that time and, “besides, I had no intention of marrying the father.”
I was stunned.
Well, ladies and gentleman, I am proud to say that I never had an elective medical or surgical procedure that was designed and intended to kill my own child. And I never slept with anyone but my husband. I firmly believe that the facts are connected and strongly urge others to only have sex when they could bear up under – even unexpected – pregnancies and only with their spouses.
At the very least don’t sleep with people you flat out know you wouldn’t marry, even to save a life!
