I Had a Late-Term Abortion. I Am Not a Monster.

I am a baby killer.

I stopped mid-step on my way into my office in Manhattan, and that thought scrolled through my brain yet again: “I am a baby killer.” It was an April day this year, nine weeks after I ended my child’s life.

I decided to keep walking.

That is a choice I have to make every day: Give up or keep moving. I have been choosing the latter, over and over again.

1. Thoughts for her

These rabid anti-choice fanatics don’t care about mothers and babies at all. I keep reading that so many of what they call late term abortions are a result of parents receiving a devastating medical diagnosis for either the fetus or mother. RW religion eliminates compassion.

2. 20+ years ago my daughter utilized the services of Dr Tiller.

She is NO monster either, just a young woman who made a choice about her own body and future.

3. Ain't nobodies business but your own!

That's the way it should be.

There is support available as you know, if you need it.

Judge not....

4. The decision to end a pregnancy...

... is between patient and doctor.

I disagree with the writer of the opinion story; she is not a "baby killer". But that is my opinion. The alternative seems to be that the writer could have carried the foetus to term, delivered a humanoid baby with a barely there brain, and watched as the baby suffered and ultimately die. My opinion is that she made the right choice. She definitely experienced a loss. I know she won't read this but all I can say is I'm sorry.
