Post-abortive rape victim: abortion brought “wall of guilt”

Marie Rodler, who had an abortion after she became pregnant from a rape, has this to say:

“Abortion is not helpful; it only obscures the areas that need healing by placing a huge wall of guilt between the real issues and the woman’s conscience. Abortion puts everyone’s attention on the pregnancy instead of the victim and her needs.”
