Although I experienced having an abortion at a time when it was legal, I feel a strong need to weigh in here.
I am almost 57 years old. In 1958 my parents divorced and remarried. My step-father molested me from the time I was 6 years old until I was able to put a stop to it... after 10 years of victimization. I am lucky. I found a powerful tool within my Buddhist religion in 1974, and no longer live in the shadow of this abuse.
I keep reading opinions of people who do not feel that an abortion based on rape or incest is justifiable. I had to have an abortion based on my health issues when I was in my thirties...the child was wanted and my husband and I would have loved this child dearly. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. Thinking about what that would have been like had the child been conceived due to the incest I suffered as a young teen, well, I admit, I'd probably have committed suicide. I do not think any politician, especially one who has not (and if male never will) walk in these shoes has the right to judge, let alone make laws on it.
