Vernadette Broyles of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes about her most controversial column to date.
It was about abortion. In her reflection about this column, she addresses herself to those who have already experienced abortion:
"women who abort subject themselves to tremendous internal conflict. For some, these emotions remain buried. For others, it wells up as a deep longing to reverse what's been done. For others still, it morphs into anger that lashes out against anything that affirms the nagging voice within.
Everything aside, I would like to close by speaking to readers who have experienced abortion. My singular message to you is this--there is forgiveness (both between you and your Maker and the one you had made). Neither do I condemn you. Though you may label me every evil imaginable, my prayers remain with you."
