I just stumbled into a rather idiotic pro-lifer's journal where a dullish debate was raging, and this particular person (the sort who tells women facing life-threatening pregnancies that doctors are often wrong - you know the kind) had mentioned her newborn daughter and how she COULDN'T IMAGINE IF SHE HAD ABORTED HER.

And it occurred to me, immediately - when I am a mother, when I have a daughter, I swear that I will be the mom to which my daughter's friends can go for help, in getting access to birth control, in advice on how to extricate oneself from bad relationships, on how to go about getting an abortion. This poor young girl is not going to be able to turn to her mother, and if my children's friends find themselves in the same position, goddamnit, I am going to give them somewhere to turn.
