Post-abortion woman: “I Come First”

A woman who had an abortion gives advice to other women facing the same dilemma:

“You’ve got to tell yourself, I am worth a hell of a lot, and I come first. ….my well-being, my peace, my value comes first. The focus of my life should – and can – be me,… So when the outside says you should be thinking of the child, say No. The only thing you should be thinking about is you.”

 Quoted in Patricia Launneborg Abortion: a Positive Decision (New York: Bergin & Garvey, 1992) 72

From an abortion at 8 weeks. Over 1600 abortions are done at this stage or later every day
