Anti-Abortionist Stirs Strong Reactions

April 13, 1990

Your interview with Susan Carpenter McMillan introduced to your readers a naive, privileged woman of almost terrifying self-righteousness. So she felt she murdered a baby at age 21? Fine. I hereby grant her permission never to have another abortion. That presumption on my part makes about as much sense as her presumption in trying to prevent other women from making their own reproductive choices.

She says: "I am a walking example of pro-choice. This is what it does to you." No, indeed: "This" (her regret 20 years later) is what it did to her . Her arrogance in assuming that every woman who chooses abortion will feel the same way is quite frightening.
