Death of a baby, birth of despair.
Jane Chastain reflects on the time she helped a friend through an abortion.
"I would like to be able to tell you that after a brief moment of regret my friend went on with her life and never looked back. I can't. She has suffered severe emotional pain and chronic back problems, which doctors told her likely were the result of some deep psychological trauma.
It was years before we talked about her abortion again. Through tears she said, 'Janie, if we knew then what we know now, I wouldn't have done it and you wouldn't have let me do it.'"
Chastain will discuss her experience and recent research Friday morning at 8:00 Eastern on this radio show.
