What Happens to Women Who Are Denied Abortions?

Joshua Lang writes for The New York Times: “S. arrived alone at a Planned Parenthood in Richmond, Calif., four days before Christmas. As she filled out her paperwork, she looked at the women around her. Nearly all had someone with them; S. wondered if they also felt terrible about themselves or if having someone along made things easier. She began to cry quietly. She kept reminding herself that she felt secure in her decision. ‘I knew that that was going to be the right-wrong thing to do,’ she told me later. ‘I was ready for it.'”
