Dorothy Day is the Perfect Role Model for Post-Abortion Women
Last edited 7th September 2015

As a 21 year old, Dorothy Day had a dalliance with another journalist, and became pregnant as a result. The fellow pressurised her to have an abortion, and in September 1919, 86 years ago this month, Day made a decision that she would bitterly regret for the rest of her life. She had an illegal abortion. Afterwards, Day was weighted down with a guilt-fuelled depression. Reflecting on Day’s distress, it calls to mind Pope Francis’ words last week, when he described post-abortion women as bearing, ‘the scar of this agonising and painful decision’.

Life Matters: God’s Final Word on the Subject
Last edited 20th July 2015

There are few evils in this world that tear me apart like abortion does. I’ve prayed with women who were contemplating it; some didn’t do it, others did. I’ve held crying women in my arms for hours, days, and even years after they have had an abortion. There are no words I can find to describe the pain that an abortion causes – to the mother, the father, the baby, or the Lord.

China Continues to Devour Its Own Children
Last edited 21st May 2015

This story concerns a married couple who each have one child with their previous spouses (it is unclear if the previous marriages ended due to divorce or death). According to the regulations set down by the Guizhou province where the woman in question, Qin Yi, works as a teacher, the couple are not allowed to have their own child. In the eyes of the province’s education bureau and the health and planning commission, their “one child” quota has been filled in their previous marriages. Thus, when it found out that Qin was five months pregnant, the commission ordered that she have an abortion by the end of the month.
