Commentary  Woman: a baby-making machine

Re: “Women deserve better than abortion” | Commentary | January 28

Women deserve better than abortion? Are you for real? I mean, I agree that there should be an improvement of social services in terms of maternity leave, daycare services, and housing for pregnant women, but your article conveniently fails to recognize an important category of women who get abortions: WOMEN WHO WISH NOT TO HAVE CHILDREN.  EVER.  PERIOD. Saying that women deserve better than abortion felt a bit like a slap in the face, like because we have the reproductive capabilities to have children, then we SHOULD be having them.
