The response to the “baby killer” remark is absolutely fabulous.  I’ve wanted to say something similar to people who have accused pro-choice people of being “baby killers”, especially since I’ve been pro-choice since I was in elementary school & I’ve never killed any babies.



In 2004 I was told I had cervical cancer. My only option was to have a hysterectomy to remove the cancerous cells. Two days before the surgery my blood work said I was pregnant. My doctor’s words are burned in my mind for the rest of my life. “Tonya, if you carry this baby it will kill you. Your only choice is to have an abortion.” I agonized over this. I cried and held my girls close to me. I didn’t want to leave them but at the same time how could I abort their brother/sister. People looked at me like it was an easy choice. Surely I wanted to live, and to them that was the only choice to be made. I was lucky, I suppose, two days after I was told I was pregnant my body tried to abort the child, and in the emergency room we found a rather large cyst that was producing hormones and making my body believe it was pregnant. So tell me, sir, if this happened today, to a woman already married, already with kids, would you make her see images of a child she has to abort to save her life, so that she can be there for the children she already has? Because that is exactly what your proposed bill would do.How is that not torture? How is that anything other than wrong on the most basic of levels? Tonya Spurgeon Robertson
