Went there and read it....wow....a face on the issue, a real story on the issue, a real life on the issue. Bless you for your courage to say what many could not. Your story is important.
This was a great article. Read it a couple of weeks ago. You showed the idiocy of the black and white thinking of some on the abortion issue. So sorry you have to endure all this (and sorry Ronan does too).
No one should have such power to make laws affecting the personal life decisions of others without having walked in the shoes of those others.

How brave you are; how thankful I am.
