Artist hanged herself after aborting her twins

London Telegraph [Read the Article]

Her suicide note read: 'I told everyone I didn't want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late...' The inquest heard that Sylvia Beck, the victim's mother, wrote to the hospital after her daughter's death, saying: 'I want to know why she was not given the opportunity to see a counsellor. She was only going ahead with the abortion because her boyfriend did not want the twins. I believe this is what led Emma to take her own life - she could not live with what she had done.' The doctor said: 'I discussed Emma's situation with her, and wrote on the form, 'Unsupported, lives alone, ex-partner aware.'"

I truly hope that no one tries to co-opt this tragedy as another “See, I told you so” moment.  What happened to this poor woman is exactly what should silence both the pro-lifers and the pro-choicers.  No one was really listening to her. No one gave her a life-sustaining option.  We MUST change our language about the abortion issue.  It is about sustaining the dignity and quality of ALL life—the unborn and the mother.
