    "In 1973, after Roe v. Wade, abortion became legal but had to be performed in a hospital. That of course was changed later. For the first 'legal abortion day' I had scheduled five procedures. While scrubbing between cases, I was accosted by the Chief of the OB/Gyn service. He asked me, 'How many children are you going to kill today?' My response, out of anger, was a familiar vulgar retort. About three months later, this born-again Christian called me to explain that he was against abortion but his daughter was only a junior in high school and was too young to have a baby and he was also afraid that if she did have a baby she would not want to put it up for adoption. I told him he did not need to explain the situation to me. 'All I need to know', I said, 'is that SHE wants an abortion.' Two years later I performed a second abortion on her during her college break. She thanked me and pleaded, 'Please don't tell my dad, he is still anti-abortion.'" (Physician, Washington State)

    I agree, so this thread is looking like one.

    People make decisions they regret.

    I'm sorry, did you think you had a point?

    OMG! A parent made a decision they hopes would be best for their child even though they really weren't sure it was the right decision!!!!! How horrific!!!! How shocking!!!!

    What I find really admirable is the doctor who related this story not rubbing the other man's nose in what was obviously a difficult and uncomfortable choice...its just a shame that the OP chose not to take the same high road.

    lol...you don't see a schism with a pro-life dad having his daughter get an abortion?


    Somehow you find this admirable?
