God bless her.
Go listen to actress Ellen Burstyn admit her abortion regret over 5 decades after having one illegally at the age of 18. She admitted it for the first time during an interview on CFRB radio, at the age of 74:
Pt.2 is here (with the abortion discussion transcript below):
"[T]he interviewer asked Burstyn 'what was the lowest moment' of her life.Her Amazon book webpage is where I obtained the fact that she had the abortion illegally at age 18.
"Burstyn: You know, I guess, I hate to talk about this on the air, but having an abortion. You know that was really an extremely painful experience.
Interviewer: Did you feel you didn't have a choice?
"Burstyn: At the time I was just young and dumb, I didn't really want to have a baby then. It was the wrong thing to do and I didn't really understand that till later. That was very very painful, that was probably the worst....These experiences are--we make a choice, and they have ramifications for the rest of our life...It's one of the dark threads [in our life's tapestry]. I try not to allow regret to settle over me like a shroud, because I think it's an unhealthy way to live."
