Something horrifying, brief flashes, this same strength." - Author: Kyle Beachy

Quotes About Operation Theatre

"And - as a woman reconciled in her own body - I feel I can argue with anyones god about my right to end a pregnancy. My first conception - wanted so badly - ended in miscarriage, three days before my wedding. A kind nurse removed my wedding manicure with nail-polish remover, in order to fit a finger-thermometer for the subsequent D&C operation. I wept as I went in to the operating theatre, and wept as I came out. In that instance, my body had decided that the baby was not to be and had ended it. This time, it was my mind that has decided that this baby was not to be. I dont believe ones decision is more valid than the other. They both know me. They are both equally capable of deciding what is right." - Author: Caitlin Moran
