Postabortion feminist: I wish my child had been “sacrificed” “with my own hands.”

Postabortion women and pro-choice activist Sue Nathanson regrets her abortion – but she does not seem to regret the death of her unborn baby, but rather the way her child was killed, or as she says it, “sacrificed.” She would rather have had her child killed at home than in a clinic – that is what she says it this truly bizarre quote, in which she seems to be saying that she wishes she could’ve killed the baby herself, with her “own hands”:

“I wish now that my fourth child could have been sacrificed with my love and tears, even with my own hands, in a circle of a family or community of women, in a circle of a compassionate and loving community of men and women who might be able to perceive my vulnerability as a mirror of their own, and not as it was, in a cold and lonely hospital room with instruments of steel.”
