Celebrating Roe Vs WadeThe story begins with my wife receiving medication from a doctor (a dermatologist) who was not aware of my wife's pregnancy. Perhaps he should have asked. When my wife's GP found out he check with the drug company who advised that the drug would cross the placenta and might damage the fetus. A termination of the pregnancy was recommended.
At the time, abortions were not legal except in cases like this and the consent of the husband was required. I consented and that's my story. A few years later, I was moved when President Clinton vetoed a bill that would limit Roe vs Wade. I wrote a letter to thank him and made a contribution to his re-election. It was assumed that I was an American; but I am Canadian. :-)
