Even if this Gerri didnt get pregnant, he'd most likely have found out. So, her life would have been in jeopardy. She made her choice to sleep with her lover anyway, knowing he'd find out.<quoted text>
Or, some of us already incorporated all that info where it became part of the big picture.
Women had very limited civil rights prior to Roe v Wade. Women DID FEAR their husbands (even after separating from them). Women DID FEAR choosing an abortion would mean death because these weren't safe, regulated, medical procedures. But that the abortion was *still* determined to be the right decision for that individual pregnant woman meant it literally was life or death.
Thank goodness for legal abortion. Since it's performed earlier and earlier, American women won't have to be subjected to those archaic FEARS anymore.
At the time, she committed an ILLEGAL act. And she died, her baby died and her other kids ended up wliving in abuse with their father.
Sounds selfish to me.
It STILL goes on today.....abuse....forced or feared abortions....sleeping around.....going into abusive relationships.....women dying during abortions.....babies killed during abortions....women./men making bad choices.....
