Incest Victim Wishes Someone Would’ve Questioned Her Decision To Abort

Another incest victim who had an abortion said:

“I had hoped someone would question me before my abortion. But, I was not asked why I chose abortion. If I had been questioned at all, someone would have heard quite a story…I feel the state let me down….If abortion had been questioned in my case, I may have had a baby. I may have been happier. I may not have gone through the suicide attempts. I know that abortion has long term affects on women…”
