As a teenager I can remember hearing of young women dying because they had an abortion. I wondered at the time why. My mother told me that it was not legal to do this and so the individual had to sneak around and try and find someone to do it and many times of course it was a risk and the person was not qualified, or knew what to do in the event of something going wrong as they were most of the time not medical people. At the time I thought that was wrong and that a woman should be able to not have a child if they did not want it. I guess I have always been pro-choice and did not realize it for many years.
