In The New York Times last week, former Glamour editor Cindi Leive encouraged women to share their abortion stories. She argues it would be harder to “demonize” abortion if more women who had one shared their experience.
Leive is wrong in many ways. But she raises an important point for pro-lifers. Many women have had abortions. And they do need to speak out. First of all, so that they can heal. Secondly, because they can be a powerful force for life.
The Stream interviewed Tina Whittington, Vice President of Programs for Students for Life, about how the pro-life movement can welcome women who have had abortions.
