The UK Life League, a British pro-life group has reported that Jane Russell, the 1940s and '50s
Hollywood movie star and pinup girl, now aged 82, gave an interview this
week slamming abortion. "People should never, ever have an abortion.
Don't talk to me about it being a woman's right to choose what she does
with her own body. The choice is between life and death," said Russell.
Describing her shock at finding herself pregnant at 18: "The only solution
was to find a quack and get an abortion. I had a botched abortion and it
was terrible. Afterwards my own doctor said: 'What butcher did this to
you?' I had to be taken to hospital. I was so ill I nearly died. I've never
known pain like it." Russell says that due to the abortion she was not
able to have any other children.
