A suicide note read: “I should never have had an abortion. I see I would have been a good mum….I told everyone I didn’t want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies: they need me, no-one else does.”
Beck’s tragedy sheds light on the growing body of empirical research suggesting a causal link between abortion and psychological problems and confirms the reality that some women are seriously hurt by abortion.
It also highlights what pro-life activists who counsel women with crisis pregnancies learn well, and polling confirms: many pregnant women feel intense pressure to abort. Beck’s mother said, “She was only going ahead with the abortion because her boyfriend did not want the twins. I believe this is what led Emma to take her own life — she could not live with what she had done.”
Jail time for women who abort? No chance. As Georgette Forney, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, has stated, “Women are already serving time for abortion right now in our own prisons…of guilt, shame and remorse.” It’s the prison of abortion from which pro-lifers seek to liberate would-be mothers, and their children.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
