Abortions Of Last Resort

February 18, 1990

For years I have considered myself a pro-choice supporter. Although I would never have an abortion myself, I strongly feel it is not my right, or the right of anyone else, to decide what another woman can do with her body.

After reading about McMahon and his abortion practices, I could not come up with any justification for performing an abortion at such a late stage in pregnancy (unless, of course, for the safety of the mother). How can this man take the abortion issue so lightly? The idea that a doctor could call abortion his "passion" makes me sick. The decision of a woman to abort her child has to be one of the toughest decisions of her life. McMahon is bragging that he can successfully complete an abortion at six months. That is nothing to brag about.
