Abortion seemed liked a logical answer. After all, in 2014, senior editor of Elle Magazine Laurie Abraham penned a piece entitled “Abortion: Not Easy, Not Sorry.”In it, she wrote: “Nearly one in three American women will have an abortion by age 45.

Why are we pressured to feel that we should regret our choice, and that there’s something wrong with us if we don’t?”This kind of content had shaped my expectations. In fact, Abraham’s article could have been a perfect segue for the tale of an empowered woman who aborted the baby that got in the way of her Olympic dreams. Warily, I clicked on the link.But what I got was a lovely surprise.
