A moving breast cancer story and a jerk boyfriend

In February of 2002 Charnette Messé was diagnosed with breast cancer. This her story.
There's a lot to be said about her story, including warnings about the
abortion/breast cancer link. But for men, there's also a story about
how her boyfriend lived with her, fathered her child, said he didn't
want to get married, and then left he with the choice to get an
abortion, with dire consequences.

I know that the abortion
industry stoutly denies any breast cancer link, and belittles any woman
who regrets her decision to have an abortion, but that's no reason for
the mainstream media to ignore stories such as Charnette's. And, as a
man, I think that more of us need to condemn her boyfriend's actions.
He's truly a jerk.
