Politician describes letters from regretful post-abortive women

While arguing against unrestricted abortion, British pro-life politician John Corrie said in 1979:

“I have received many letters from unhappy women. Many of them bitterly regret having had their abortion and express in their letters the importance of counselling. If only they had known what it all entailed, they would not have gone through with the abortion.”
