Abortionist: I end lives, but for good reasons

From one abortionist who practices in Boston:

“I have the utmost respect for life; I appreciate that life starts early in the womb, but also believe that I’m ending it for good reasons. Often I’m saving the woman, or I’m improving the lives of the other children in the family. I also believe that women have a life they have to consider. If a woman is working full-time, has one child already, and is barely getting by, having another child that would financially push her to go on public assistance is going to lessen the quality of her life. And it’s also an issue for the child, if it would not have had a good life. Life’s hard enough when you’re wanted and everything’s prepared for. So yes, I end life, but even when it’s hard, it’s for a good reason.”

Cheryl Alkon (as told to) “Confessions of an Abortion Doctor” Boston December 2004

These may be good reasons to put a baby up for adoption, or to use protection or abstain so the pregnancy doesn’t happen at all. But are these really good reasons to kill a baby?
