An article in the Daily Mail Online, dated October 14, details the exploits of a woman "addicted to abortion." Irene Vilar has admitted to having fifteen abortions in a seventeen plus years period of time. She has written a book on her experience entitled, Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict.
Her exploits have created quite a stir, including a controversy within the pro-choice community itself. If one is truly pro-choice, how does one condemn this woman's actions over the years? Yet, at the same time, is anyone with any kind of moral conscience completely comfortable with her decisions? Does "abortion addiction" reveal the extremely flawed logic of the pro-choice view or is it completely consistent?
I would like to hear from those persons who consider themselves pro-choice. How do you respond to this women and her many decisions to terminate her pregnancies? How do you reconcile her behavior with your pro-choice views? I would also like to hear from those who are pro-life. What do you make of Vilar's experience and the current debate on abortion?
I invite all to respond. Let's make sure that we keep the discussion civil.
