Woman kill their babies “because they care”

Pro-Choice activist Rene Denfeld wrote the following in her introduction to a book that had interviews with post-abortion women. Denfield argues that the women who told their stories in the book aborted out of love for their “fetuses”:

“The women…were not flippant or selfish about their choice.… They believed in family planning. They wanted their children to enter a family that was ready for them. They wanted their children to be loved and well cared for. They knew parenting is hard work and a serious responsibility. And they felt their decision was not just best for themselves, but for their future children. In short, women who abort are not only making a moral choice, they are often making a good moral choice.

As Cannold writes, women kill their fetuses because they care.”
