Fifty one rejection letters -- that is the number Irene Vilar received before she finally found someone to publish a tale so extreme it would surely be fiction if it wasn't her personal story: A woman who says she had 15 abortions and describes it as an addiction.
The book, Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict -- a graphic and disturbing tale of one woman's abortions and her personal quest to understand her actions -- is bound to provoke a fury when it is released next week.
It is no surprise that publishers backed away. Ms. Vilar says the dozens of rejection letters "map the psychic realm" of the United States, where abortion remains such a volatile topic that a Kansas doctor who provided the service was shot and killed during a Sunday church service in May.
Now 40 years old and raising two daughters, aged three and five, Ms. Vilar has changed public records to protect her family's privacy and refused to go on a book tour.
She is prepared for her book to be misunderstood. She takes full responsibility for her actions, is adamantly pro-choice and does not intend for her book to become part of the divisive anti-abortion debate. Indeed, she describes herself as "an extreme pathological case."
"I'm solely responsible for my actions and that's what this book is about, a search for understanding and self-accountability," she said in an interview from her home in Colorado. "I refuse to see myself as a victim."

“I refuse to see myself as a victim.”
Well that’s good cause she’s not...
Those 15 babies she had murdered are the victims...
In a real world those 3 and 5 yo children would be taken away from her...
Modern day Mengele?
“Her grandmother is Lolita Lebron, a Puerto Rican Independence activist.”
She was a terrorist that Jimmy Carter pardoned.
The heroine of the Democrap party.
This makes me sick to my stomach.
Let’s see, she murdered 15 children and if this were a just country she would be doing 15 life terms in prison along with other women who kill their babies.
Interesting that she had so much trouble finding a publisher, in spite of her creds as the granddaughter of a famous terrorist.
One more piece of evidence that abortion is not really popular.
Who on earth wants to read a sick book about the serial killing of innocent babies?
Is she planning to give signed copies to her two surviving kids? Will Obama invite her to the White House for a Presidential Medal of Freedom, in honor of her brave defense of “A Woman’s Right to Choose”?
Anyone who has more than two abortions should get their tubes tied. Even people who are not rabidly pro-life would find that woman who had 15 abortions deranged.
Seems to me this woman has a lot more issues than even what she states. Why didn’t she simply get her tubes tied or something?? What kind of mind set allows her to think she should get pregnant that many times?
Hopefully those abortions were before week six, before those fetuses became sentient persons.
I get bno sense of remorse. She is focused on her being “addicted”, i.e., it’s all about her.
Me, too. There were 15 victims, however.
“Hopefully those abortions were before week six, before those fetuses became sentient persons.”
Did you forget the sarcasm tag?
Her children should consider themselves lucky, that they even made it to term.
On the other hand, what are the chances that this could be another James Frey? A non fiction book, that is really fiction? All in the name to sell books.
Few serial killers can match that whore’s total.
