Religious Baptist has abortion

An article in the New York Times profiled women having abortions. This is the story of one woman:

“Alexia, a Baptist who wore a cross pendant, prayed all through the two-and-a-half-hour drive from Delta State University in Mississippi. She was having her third abortion.”

She says:

“My religion is against it. In a way I feel I’m doing wrong, but you can be forgiven. I blame myself. I feel I shouldn’t have sex at all.”

Christians have abortions just like other people. Churches need to tell their parishioners where they can go to for support and explain to them why abortion is wrong.
