Richard Blaine writes:

It took four surgeries and seven years to repair the "minor" scarring left by an elective abortion before my wife conceived again. Had the practioner explained that posibility prior to the abortion, my wife and I would have probably chosen a different path. Information is power.

Linda T. Mitchem writes:

99% of all abortions results because of the actions of two selfish people,who do not want to be held accountable for their behavior.Many women,without the emotional and financial support of the father, simply give up.Counseling and support should be provided to enable the children to be born and adopted, tubal ligation and vasectomy should be implemented to prevent future tragedies to innocent children.This should be provided free if needed, future reversal should be the responsibility of the two people who have demonstrated they can't be responsible for the children they create.Too many children have already experienced death to continue to allow this horror to continue as it has.
