    1. I get very angry when I hear self-righteous people pontificating about how women are so casual about having a termination. I have only ever met one woman (and she was a very strange woman with ‘issues’) who said it hadn’t affected her at all. Even when there is no other solution, it’s a terrible decision and never taken lightly.
