Reread the last paragraph of the story, and maybe, someday, the point of it will come to you. I feel like the point of this is, mainly, that here is one instance in which the baby actually does find a voice. Sad that all those others do not. If you can't see that, I think you were reading a different atricle. --->Dawn

I do not see how a failed abortion from 30 years ago means squat to todays arguement.

But what if this same exact thing happened just months or weeks ago? (I am sure this is not the only case of a failed abortion in history.) The children in a more recent case case such as this cannot speak for themselves yet. This is a woman who can. But would you give any more credit to or see any more relevance in a person who was the survivor of a failed abortion that happened, say, 2 years ago, were they able to speak for themselves? --->Dawn

I believe the point of the story is that anyone of us could have been aborted by our mothers and we would have had absolutely no say in it. How many of you could say that your mother would have been better off had she not given birth to you and she should have had an abortion, and if your mother would have been better off not being a mother aren't you glad she decided to be one anyway.

my mother might very well ahve been better off having aborted me rather than have me.

well I don't know the situation and maybe she would have, but aren't you glad she chose to have you anyway, otherwise we wouldn't even be having this conversation

there have been points in my life when I wondered why she didn't abort me, times when i sincerely think I was a waste of humanity and air. those times are long gone though.I am much more thankful to the couple who raised me than the woman who bore me.

Perhaps the story of Gianna Jessen will add light she is also a botched abortion http://www.abortionfacts.com/survivors/giannajessen.asp---same type story---but within it she relates that she knows a 2 year old that is also a surviver====the story was written in 1996 so the baby's birth was 1994---that puts it a little closer. Perhaps that is why the born alive act was proposed a few years ago which prevents doctors from letting an abortion surviver die --instead medical care and transportationt a hospital. (don't know if it passed--I'll have to look it up) The fact is it still does happen.
