Woman 'addicted to abortion' releases memoir
National Post ^ | October 2, 2009 | Mary Vallis

Posted on 10/03/2009 12:31:31 PM PDT by kennedy

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."

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...

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.

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.

The original argument for legalizing contraception was so women didn’t have to have abortions and unwanted children.
Lord, I wonder what will happen to her 2 young children when they find out Mommy killed FIFTEEN of their siblings - “Mommy, why’d you keep us?”

I think anyone who has more than 2 abortions should have the “essure” (tubes tied by putting in coils) or quinacrine (chemicals shot into uterus to destroy the lining). Both methods are cheap, 100%, and can be done faster than an abortion.
Oh, wait, Planned Parenthood won’t make so much money if they do that ...

Ya know, it’s ironic how long it takes the death penalty to take effect, but an under-age pregnant girl doesn’t even need the consent of her PARENTS to do it.

I find myself in agreement with Ms. Vilar, oddly enough.

She's not a victim. She's a perp, with a whole string of victims.

Can’t really think of a comment except I wish she’d gotten fat and ugly so no one would have wanted to impregnate her. She looks like a conservative. I fear for her two living children and eventually their children who are the third and fourth generation of a bad seed.

Regardless of the Vedas, from evidence I've read, prior to six weeks the fetus is not conscious or even perceptive of pain (sentient in the most basic definition of that term).

IMO, in order to be a "person" one must be sentient, conscious, self-aware, and at least minimally intelligent.

These women should have their genitals removed and “converted” for use ONLY as an exit point for urine.

That leaves out a lot of people with various disorders and injuries. I'm not sure what the difference is between sentient, conscious and self-aware. Those are all synonyms to me.

I could also point out that the logic used for the legal definition of 'person' used in Roe v. Wade is no different than the logic used in the Dredd Scott decision so self-awareness and intelligence were not a factor in the legal reasoning.

A dog is sentient and conscious but is not self-aware. There is evidence that plants are sensitive to pain (the most basic definition of sentient), but they sure are not conscious, self-aware, or minimally intelligent.

But in my above post I said that a fetus is not a "sentient person" before week six -- and that definition of "sentient person" describes probably every conceivable injured or ill child or adult human (child being any human after the first trimester).

An individual who is 6 weeks post-conception is the same person he or she was at 5 weeks post-conception. From Conception to week 6, or month six, or six years old, or 60, every person expriences a continuous process of development and change marking the sequential stages of the same human life.

"IMO, in order to be a "person" one must be sentient, conscious, self-aware, and at least minimally intelligent."

None of those qualities --- sentient, conscious, self-aware, etc. --- are permanent or continuous; all of them are intermittent.

If you say those qualities must be both fully developed and operative, then every human being ceases to be a person for about 8 hours out of every 24.

And I myself am not a person until after my first cup of coffee.

I think your definition is open to criticism.
