Teenager Who Had Illegal Abortion Shows Grief And Remorse

Jane was the name of the underground abortion network that was in place before Roe versus Wade. The feminists who ran the organization employed an abortionist who had no medical license, and later did the abortions themselves despite having no official medical training. While they claimed that their abortions were safe, they did not follow the women after they return to their homes, often many states away.

A teenager who had an abortion said the following to a woman who assisted it and was pregnant:

“The other was a high school student who had had a difficult time during her abortion. Afterword, as Deborah sat with her on the couch in the living room, she collapsed in Deborah’s arms, sobbing , “I killed my baby, but you’ll be a very good mother because you’re taking care of me.”

Deborah was horrified. The counseling session was the place to address these feelings. Hadn’t her counselor talk to her about this? Deborah asked, “If you felt that way, why did you do it?”

“My mother said if I have this baby, she’d see to it that the welfare people take it away from me, so what’s the point.” She hugged Deborah’s belly, “I killed my baby and here’s your baby. I’m glad you helped me, but I wish I could have a baby like you.”
