When I became pregnant as a college junior, in 1967, the closest legal abortion on demand was in Japan. A student nurse gave me a catheter, some antibiotics and the name of a sympathetic doctor I could use in an emergency.


I had an abortion a few years ago. My boyfriend, at the time, and I had recently gotten back together after being broken up for about a month while he thought about getting back together with his ex-wife.


I had an abortion in my early 20s. In the sub-culture where I lived at the time, it was sort of an unspoken assumption that getting pregnant would be dealt with via abortion.


People who think you can get rid of abortion by passing scores of draconian laws, are either idiots or they are living in a dream world.
