Margaret, 65

Thirty-five years ago, I was married and the mother of a beautiful little girl.  I also was suffering from an undiagnosed but painful bout of what turned out to be colitis.  After two days of upper and lower GI and small bowel Xrays, the colitis was discovered and treatment began.  Within two days of the testing process, we also discovered that I was two months pregnant.  After many tests and discussions with my gynecologist and my husband, we found out that the fetus had been severely damaged by the Xrays and that it was nonviable.  At that point, my choices were to carry a nonviable fetus to term or to have an abortion.  Thank God I did have a choice - and that, thanks to Roe v Wade, all we women continue to have such choices.  We must always have choices.
