The clip below is reasonably long but is well worth watching.   The themes in it may be upsetting to some.

I don't want to say too much about this issue.  I do think it'd be helpful if it was discussed though.  This clip (forwarded to me by CM and received with gratitude)  was the first I had seen of an abortion survivor. To be honest I didn't even realise so many abortions were 'unsuccessful'.

Miss Jessen has a powerful story to tell and she puts it across well.  However there are many who feel differently about abortion and there is definitely room for a reasoned discussion.

Some questions to consider include;  Are there any circumstances when abortion is appropriate?  Should women who undergo abortions really be treated as murderers?  If the child is a result of rape or will be born with extreme disabilities should abortion be considered?  At what point does a fetus become a person with rights?

What are your thoughts?

If abortion has been an issue for you personally and you wish to talk about it feel free to contact me ( and if you wish I can put you in touch with someone who can help.
