I only recently discovered Heather King through her blog Shirt of Flame. King's writing resonated with me and I found her in my head on several occasions after reading her articles. I have several of her books on my wishlist.
I recently purchased and read Poor Baby, King's reflection on being a child of the 60's and her experience having abortions. The more I read, the more my mouth dropped open. King gets it because she lived it.
I didn't have an abortion back then, but when I thought I was pregnant, I planned on it. I would have done it for all the same reasons that Heather King had hers and a few of my own.
If you or someone you know has had an abortion and needs help, you can get help here.
