“I do have moral compunctions. And if I see a case that’s later, like after 20 weeks where it frankly is a child to me, I really agonize over it because the potential is so imminently there. I think, “Gee, it’s too bad that this child couldn’t be adopted.” On the other hand, I have another position, which I think is superior in the hierarchy of questions, and that is: “Who owns the child?” It’s got to be the mother.”

“I have the utmost respect for life; I appreciate that life starts early in the womb, but also believe that I’m ending it for good reasons. Often I’m saving the woman or I’m improving the lives of other children in the family. I also believe that women have a life they have to consider. If a woman is working full-time, has one child already and is barely getting by, having another child that would financially push her to go on public assistance yes is going to lessen the quality of her life. And it’s also an issue for the child, if it would not have had a good life. Life is hard enough when you’re wanted and everything’s prepared. So yes, I end life, but even when it’s hard, it’s for a good reason.”

Are these good reasons to do this to a child? Adoption is an option that would also solve all these problems.
