What's being said

  • Katrina

    Correction to previous comment: "created back then" (not born)....

  • Katrina

    It‘s not the abortion itself but the nonchalant attitude of these women that is disturbing. Janice‘s children should realize, if they were born back then, they would have been the ones aborted.

  • Chris

    Not morally repugnant? Who decides I suppose. Although, a Google search of "five month fetus" might clear up that answer for many.For me, its a matter of science, logic and honesty. You killed your pre-born child because she was inconvenient.

  • Katrina

    Janice thought everything was a joke; hence, her sarcastic comment about $1200 an hour. She used to laugh about being with a male associate each time he fought with his associate girlfriend. (I am pro abortion in the very early stages.)

  • Elbert

    Killing babies is all just a big laugh, isn‘t it?

  • Lawyer

    This article is repulsive (and devoid of content). It‘s focus is on what the partner at the firm think?! And whether it is morally repugnant is an individual assessment, not a group one. And some women who have had them believe that it is.

  • Lawyer And Mother

    Kudos to these three accomplished professional women. The important thing is that it‘s always a choice, whether it‘s to have an abortion or to talk about it after the fact. There should be no stigma. For me, personally, my medical history is private, so I will not be telling any of you about my colonoscopy either.
