Meet Irene Vilar. She is addicted to abortions. You will not believe how many she has had. It is in the teens:
Irene Vilar worries that her self-described “abortion addiction” will be misunderstood, twisted by the pro-life movement to deny women the right to choose. Her book, “Impossible Motherhood,” chronicles her own dark choices of having… …15 abortions in 16 years, much of it as a married woman. As press on the book has begun to leak out, Vilar — a literary agent and editor — says she has already sensed “an inkling of hatred.”
At the age of 16 she married a tyrannical 50-year-old professor, a relationship which made her ashamed, belittled and depressed. She self-harmed and attempted suicide several times but continued to get pregnant with monotonous regularity. “I had twelve abortions in eleven years with my first husband,” says Irene who is now very regretful of her troubled past. Her other three abortions were with different men as Irene continued to use abortion as if it were contraception. Thankfully Irene uncovered the courage to end her dysfunctional marriage and found a healthy and compassionate love with a new husband, a writer and poet of her own age. Luckily her repeated terminations had not damaged her reproductive system and she now has a happy family with her husband and two young girls aged three and five.
