Response to oldandhappy (Reply #8)

31. No kidding. My late father-in-law was a doctor.

He told this story about driving a bleeding young woman to the hospital. She was hemorrhaging. Pretty much all over the back seat of his car. She'd sought a back-alley abortion that went bed, as most of them do, and she was actually on the verge of dying. He was a very moral very conservative gent. But that made him decide that safe and legal abortions were something that was needed - because they kept young women of childbearing age ALIVE and HEALTHY, so they could eventually have those babies and care for them and afford to raise them. Chances are if you were lucky enough to survive a back-alley abortion, you were often rendered infertile for the rest of your life. Wire coat hangers anyone?
