I won’t touch political and theological debates with a 10-foot pole — call me a coward, if you insist, but I have very good reasons — but in recent days I keep seeing headlines about Roe v. Wade, the legal precedent that, essentially, made induced abortions legal.
It’s offensive for me to hear such glee over the right to induce abortions when my own spontaneous — not-my-choice — abortion (“miscarriage”) was so painful. I know so many others’ are too. Spontaneous or induced, abortion is never good. Simply, it means death. It means sorrow.
Next week I’ll write more about the science of miscarriages and experts’ best tips for dealing with them. In the mean time, breathe your own prayer — if you’re a praying person — for the families who suffer these losses.
