20. As do I.
I considered myself personally pro-life for years, believing I'd never end a pregnancy of mine, though I was never comfortable with telling other women what to do in their own private situations, even at the height of my evangelical fervor. Now, though, in some very uncomfortable talks with my doctor and my husband and a lot of soul-searching, I've realized that getting pregnant again would most likely put me at just too high of a risk of death. According to Palin's group, my risk wouldn't be high enough, so they'd make me carry the baby--but they sure as hell wouldn't help my kids after I died.

These people need to get their heads out of their asses. I know that my mom's pretty pro-life (won't march but is really uncomfortable with abortion), and when I told her what we'd decided, she was horrified, but she understood it and said she was glad that I had the power to choose. She's been a lot more understanding since.
