    Having been through a trauma (not rape, however), I learned that the retelling of the event is very difficult emotionally.  You went through absolute hell and my heart breaks for what you had to suffer through physically and mentally.

    You are remarkable- not only did you survive a horrific rape and abortion, but out of concern for other women you shared your story.   Sharing something like that is not easy at all.

    I'm frightened that illegal abortion stories like yours are the final warning shout before all the doors close and all the lights turned out at safe medical facilities that help us, help all women.

      Dawn Hill is a very, very strong woman.

      Another thought I had- What woman could vote for a candidate with such primitive ideas on rape? To me, it seems a betrayal of self or profound ignorance of what suffering rape causes.
