Woman planning abortion avoids x-ray machine

In an article featuring women’s stories of abortion, one woman describes how she protected her baby even though she was planning to abort him or her:

“Ironically (everything seems ironic in retrospect), my sister’s wedding was the day before the abortion-in Colorado. I flew out there knowing I was pregnant, knowing my marriage was failing, knowing I was having an abortion Monday morning. I refused to go through the security gates at the airport because I was pregnant. Despite my plan for an abortion 72 hours later, I was protecting my baby.”
