How I Was Almost Aborted: Reflections on a Prenatal Brush With Death
Berkowitz, Jonathan M.
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1991 Sep; 17(3): 136-137.
After recently meeting with his biological parents, the author -- a 29-year-old-married male -- learned he had been an hour away from being aborted, being "saved" only by extraordinary circumstances. In the paper the author reflects upon previous strong pro-choice beliefs and reasserts his commitment to a pro-choice philosophy, integrating his new personal experience. The paper pays particular attention to the biological mother's experience and how her fresh insights have reinforced the author's views on abortion.
