Katie, a 31-year-old from California, was thrilled when she found out that she was pregnant four years ago. So was Jane, a 41-year-old from Virginia, who got pregnant three years ago. The first few months of their pregnancies were typical.

How they could do it, I'll never understand. I cherish life. Only if it was life threatening, pr was raped, could I possibly see doing it. Thanks Freya

Colleen, I think if you read the article you could understand why they did what they did. One Mother said, "I felt like it was selfish to carry to term just so I could hold him alive, when it was likely he would be gasping for air before dying in my arms."

Even if you read the article fully, and still felt the way you do in your comment, that is why we need to have "choice" - what you are able and willing to deal with and subject your own child to, should be a choice to you, but others may feel very different and that should be a choice for them.

I've always stood on the side of choice and abortion - it is a personal matter that the woman and her own Doctor is dealing with. I will not pass judgement on any woman that comes to the decision that abortion for her, her family, and fetus is the best decision out of all the hard choices she had to weigh out.
