Proabortion activist blames women who regret their abortions

Pro-choice activist Patricia Beninato:

I have no doubt that there are women who regret their abortions. . . . But when you read the stories on the regretful sites, a theme starts popping up-”I didn’t want to abort, but. . . .” And they start the blame game. . . . “My boyfriend said he’d leave me.” “My parents said they’d stop paying for school.” Never is it said that they made the decision. Until someone can show me a case where a woman was tied up, stuffed in the trunk of a car, brought to a clinic and tied down onto a table, I will always believe that a woman knew exactly what she was doing.

There is little sympathy for regretful women in Beninato’s words.
