Postabortion woman: my abortion was like a rape

From a book by a pro-choice author who collected the stories of women who had abortions, these are one postabortion woman’s words:

“The abortion itself was the worst part of the experience. I experienced it as a real violation, almost a rape.”

The author says:

She had been raped before, so she does not make the analogy lightly.”
