Dr. Maureen Paul explains why she is an abortionist. She became pregnant accidentally when she was younger, before it was legal on demand, when women had to get permission from a hospital committee.
“I confided in a family friend and asked to borrow the $300. But he told my parents, who immediately pulled me out of school. They took me to a local hospital, where I went before a committee that had to decide whether there was a valid medical reason to give me an abortion. When my request was turned down, I had no other option but to carry the baby to term and put [it] up for adoption. It was the most painful experience of my life. Though I wanted to have children one day-and years later had a daughter as the result of an intended pregnancy–I bitterly resented being forced to have a baby against my will. I consider that an act of violence against women.”
