Woman has abortion to go on ski vacation

abortion, skiing, snow, mountain

New Republic author Christopher Caldwell relates how some women have abortions for frivolous reasons:

The British gynecologist P. Greenhalgh writes of a rich mother of three who came to her for an abortion.  She wanted a fourth child but not just yet, since the family had already reserved a ski vacation months down the line. Many OB/GYN specialists have stories like this, and, when one hears them, it’s easy to see why women feel so guilty about owning up to the pedestrian nature of their reasons [for having an abortion.]
