Woman from Italy has 9 abortions, you won’t believe why

From author Eva Pattis:

“A social worker employed by a counseling center told me of a woman from a town in southern Italy who had reached her 8th and then her 9th abortion. The exasperated personnel at the center advised her, indeed nearly forced her, to use the coil. The woman came back a few days later to return it, saying that if she ceased to become pregnant, her husband would begin to doubt his virility. The social worker recounted this as a way of saying that one has to respect the various cultural attitudes that exist within society, along with the various views of abortion that go with them.”
