Claire Culwell was faced with challenges even before her birth. At the age of 13 her mother became pregnant and chose to have an abortion.

Sometime later she returned to an abortion clinic to find out the news, where she was told it was too late to have a second abortion. Placed on life support at birth, Culwell dealt with some difficult health issues -- including dislocated hips and feet turned inward. Despite the challenges, she's grateful to have lived to tell her story. Read more...

Website Asks Women to Be Proud of Their Abortions

Since xoJane.com prides itself on being the website "where women go when they are being selfish, and where their selfishness is applauded," it's no surprise they are asking women to brag about their experience with abortion.

The leader of a Kansas anti-abortion group says un-redacted abortion records it received recently aren't the first to be discovered by the confidential informant who provided them.

He says the man didn't say how he got the records but that he claimed he obtained them legally. Read more...
