Angelina Steenstra

“If the child is conceived through a violation such as rape, it doesn’t make (the woman) any less of a mother, and doesn’t make the child any less of a baby, any less of a person. And to put that wedge between mother and child because of the manner in which the conception took place, is to do something, to rupture something in the woman, and that’s a rupture I personally experienced.”

Angelina在十多歲時因被強姦而懷孕。因為恐懼:恐懼被嘲弄、恐懼被拒絕、恐懼成了弟妹的壞榜樣、恐懼失去家人的愛、恐懼無法完成學業,她選擇了墮胎。她後來再懷孕時卻發生宮外孕,促使她回憶起被壓抑多年、追悔莫及的墮胎經歷。
