Pro-Choicer: Abortion is a Godsend

Pro-choice activist Barbara Baird:

“It is from this woman’s perspective that it’s so demeaning, and ridiculous, to suggest that abortion is by definition a negative and unfortunate experience… For the woman who is pregnant and not wanting to be so, an abortion could easily and logically be understood as a godsend.”
