She was in her twenties in a society that had no sec ed..no legal knowledge..and ni real knowledge of abortion..AND YES IT WAS HER CHOICE..my only point in that part was that she thought she would get an abortion out of it.<quoted text>She would have given birth, anyway, or had an illegal abortion. She had a free choice of going to court to fight for her right to legal abortion. She could have said no. She wasn't a young girl and she wasn't intellectually or mentally challenged. She changed her personal view on abortion years later. So what? That doesn't make her a victim.
A lot of you seem to think that illegal abortion was a norm before ROE. It wasn't. In the sixties..We didn't even use the word. Let alone go look for one..
by the seventies it may have been a word a lot of people knew but we didn't just go to the corner and get one..They were done I know but not thar often ..it was not common practice..
SO the lawyers had her thinking this was a way to get rid of her pregnancy..why they picked a second trimester Wkman..seems also strange..but she was still asking if the appeal would grant her an abortion..She thought she would get one.
AND if she had had the illegal route open to her..they sure precluded that by getting her as a plaintiff..It said they were looking for a 5 month PREGNANT woman.
Its only my opinions..but whatever else she was or did..they used her
