Author Mary Kenny tells the following story:
“When Gina Newson was preparing her program for Channel 4, she happened upon a woman who was exceptionally serene about her abortion. The woman was, indeed, almost a model of positive reaction. She had two children and did not want any more. She had very nearly forgotten about the abortion. To oblige Gina Newson, she took out an old diary to check the details. “Took the children to school,” she had noted. “Left the car in the garage. Checked into clinic for TOP” (termination of pregnancy). As she reviewed these banal events in her well organized agenda, all of no consequence, suddenly tears began to fall. And then she cried a lot.
Nobody knows what the consequences of abortion are. Sometimes, that includes the woman whom it most concerns.”
