Post-Abortion woman: I aborted for my child’s sake, it was humane

A woman named Charity explains why she had an abortion:

“My decision to have an abortion was a decision I made to care for the child that was within me. To adopt a child would be more cruel to me than just ending it, because it’s giving the child no help. It saying “Well, it’s not my problem.” My decision to abort will affect my child in a humane manner, because I’ve got my child’s interests at heart. That’s why I decided to terminate, for that child’s sake.”

Leslie Cannold The Abortion Myth (Middletown, Connecticut: Wesleyan University Press, 1998) xviii

This is what she did to her preborn baby. Is this really humane? Is this better then giving the baby to a loving adoptive home?
