A woman in a study on abortion said she had an abortion because she wanted to enjoy life with her boyfriend and go sailing. Gail, age 26, said:
“It was really easy to make the decision, just because I didn’t want to be pregnant. I don’t like to stay home and cook and take care of a child; they make me nervous. My boyfriend is a student, and he doesn’t work. We have all these plans about traveling, and different things – going sailing, building a sailboat, and stuff. Maybe in a few years, but not right now, anyway. So, when I did find out that I was pregnant, there was really no decision to be made, you know, it had already been thought out.”
The author said:
“Gail had stated earlier in her interview that the fetus does not become an equal human life until it resembles human form.”
