Woman who regrets her abortion attends pro-abortion demonstration

A woman who regretted her abortion went to a pro-choice demonstration holding a sign saying “I regret choosing abortion.” She describes being ignored by the pro-abortion demonstrators

In January 2002, when NOW and Planned Parenthood held their annual candlelight vigil for “choice” on the Supreme Court steps, Ms. Forney stood quietly on the sidelines with a sign that said, “I regret choosing abortion.”

“It was almost an experiment to see who would express compassion. One woman said to me, ‘I’m sorry you feel that way.’ But no one else in that crowd offered me a hand. No one cared to reach out to me one iota. I knew in that moment that these people did not care about women’s rights. They cared about abortion rights.”
