POOR BABY: A Child of the 60's Looks Back on Abortion
The Obama ruling rescinding conscience protection rules for medical workers is horrifying, but could it possibly come as a surprise? Can we seriously believe a county that spends up to half its budget on the military but won't give its children basic health care is concerned with a petty matter like conscience? Can we seriously believe a country that keeps 80,000 prisoners in 24-hour a day solitary confinement is going to balk at ordering a doctor to provide an abortion?
Before converting, I had three abortions. POOR BABY is 10,000-word personal essay that tells what it was like, what happened, and what it's like now.
