Women are sacrificing their own children for their careers and bragging about it.
In an interview with the Virginia Dogwood, Dr. Lisa Kaplowitz, a prominent Virginia doctor and Democrat official, said she never would have been successful in her career if she had not been able to have an abortion in 1974.
“Basically, if I had continued with that pregnancy, I would’ve had to either give up my medical career or postpone it for a number of years,” she said.
Although Kaplowitz was married and using birth control, she said she became pregnant anyway at age 23 while attending medical school at the University of Chicago. She told the Dogwood that she and her husband knew right away that they wanted an abortion. A baby would ruin her career plans, and they did not have family close by to help raise their child.
Because the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled on Roe v. Wade a year earlier, Kaplowitz said it was not difficult to find someone willing to do the abortion. She chose to abort her unborn baby for her medical career.
Kaplowitz eventually achieved the career success that she wanted. She worked as a doctor in Virginia and eventually served for the Virginia Department of Health and later the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Now, she is semi-retired and works occasionally as a consultant, according to the report.

Here’s more from the report:
Kaplowitz says that she would never have been able to accomplish all she has if she had continued with her pregnancy almost 50 years ago. She has never regretted her decision. She went on to have two sons, both of whom are married with kids of their own now.
“As I’ve since told both of my sons, parenthood is the hardest job I’ve ever had,” she said. “It is incredibly difficult. Without resources, it’s even more difficult. For me, there was nothing more frightening than an unplanned pregnancy, and nothing more exciting than a planned pregnancy. It’s like night and day. It’s not even comparable.”
Last year, Kaplowitz said she “was horrified” when the Supreme Court overturned Roe and began allowing states to protect unborn babies’ lives again.
“It was very upsetting because I have two granddaughters; they’re not going to have the same choices that I had,” she told the Dogwood.
But Kaplowitz aborted her own child and would allow her own great-grandchildren to be killed in the same way. As a doctor, she should know better than anyone that abortions kill unique, living human beings in their mothers’ wombs – irreplaceable children who deserve to live because they are valuable human beings and not because they are wanted or convenient.
