After her abortion, she wished picketers had stopped her

From a doctor who had an abortion when she was younger. and now deeply regrets it:

“… As I left through the front door of the clinic that day there were several protesters on the front sidewalk. I could feel their stares penetrating me as I avoided their eyes. The best I could muster at that moment was anger towards them. “How can they be here at a time like this? They have no idea what I’m going through. I wish they would keep their opinions to themselves.” What would I say to those people now? “Thank you for being here and standing up for what you believe in”? Or would it be “Why couldn’t you have been there to stop on my way in?”
