Woman hoped her husband would stop abortion, they later divorce

Frederica Mathewes-Green sat with groups of women and listened to their abortion stories. She recalls one story:

“She voices the secret hope many aborting women harbor: “When I was at the clinic waiting for the abortion, I kept hoping my husband would show up. I kept hoping he would come in and say, “Don’t do this! I changed my mind!” but he didn’t show up. The marriage grew tense and they divorced a few months later.”
