    I don't know of anyone who has committed legalized murder.

    My ex-girlfriend had one after cheating on me. I resented her more for having the abortion than being unfaithful.

    I know a couple. Both were unsaved when they had the abortions. So, they are to be labeled nothing but "forgiven."

    No one. At least that I know of.

    However, many years after I had my daughter, I found out that one of the OB docs I had seen also was a "provider" at an abortion mill. At least he did not end up delivering her. It still repluses me to think that that murderer examined me.
    Needless to say, I have a different GYN now.

    I couldn't really answer. I don't know of anyone close to me that has had one, at least that they have told me.

    So it's possible that I know someone that has had one, but haven't been made aware of it.

    I tend to think this kind of thing is something folks wouldn't talk about.

    I tend to think you are very right about this.

    I couldn't vote, none applied. We have a niece who once about 15 or so years ago had an abortion.

    I teach a class in a Christian High School to 11-12 graders on Christian Ethics. A couple of years ago, as we approached the section on abortion, one of my students informed me (privately) that she had an abortion a couple of years earlier, and wanted to be excused from that section of study. I don't know if it was her choice or someone's else. I did assure her that, although abortion is sin, it is not the unforgivable sin, and that God still loved her. Unfortunately, she will have to live with that memory the rest of her life.

    A lovely elderly Christian woman, a worker in our Lord's service, before she died, privately shared her testimony with my family when we were going through tough times.

    Our Lord, full of grace and mercy, used her to bring many to a fuller knowledge of him.

    As an unbeliever, I had several friends and a family member who had abortions. Also, I almost had one - actually made the appointment for it. It's a story as to how it didn't happen (and I'm glad!).
