1971, pre-Roe v Wade, Freshman, UC Berkeley. Pregnant 18-yr-old. Lucky enough to gain access to a doctor rather than a back-street abortion. Thus, a safe medical procedure and a healthy outcome. And the opportunity for me and my 18-yr-old boyfriend to complete our education, become successful adults (including taking more responsibility for family planning resulting in 2 children born later at a time when they could be well-cared-for).
