Postabortion father: It’s not a fetus, it’s my son

Researcher Arthur Shostak wrote a book about men and abortion. He interviewed countless men in abortion clinic waiting rooms as well as many years after their partners had abortions. When interviewing one man, Shostak asked him about the “fetus.” Then:

“The man’s eyes filled up with tears. He said to me, “It’s not a fetus we’re talking about. It’s my son. He would be 3 years old now.”
