article imageAbortion addict admits to 15 abortions in 16 years

By Kesavan Unnikrishnan     Sep 23, 2009 in Health
Irene Vilar, an Hispanic author, describes the 15 abortions she has had as a married woman in her new book to be released next month.
Irene Vilar is the granddaughter of Lolita Lebron, a Puerto Rican nationalist who stormed the Capitol building with gunfire wounding several congressmen in 1954. In her upcoming book, Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict, she describes herself as an abortion addict who had 15 abortions as a married woman.
Vilar, a mother of two, describes her multiple abortions as a means of self-injury to cope from previous abortions.
She had her children from 17th and 18th pregnancies. Vilar says she will be conducting closed-door interviews and will not do a book tour fearing a public backlash.
Vilar writes on her web page:
Everybody is having babies, Hollywood has even developed some sort of motherhood fetish.Yet, women are repeatedly told that they must be everything but mothers, everything but someone weighed down by motherhood.My painful memoir to trigger a public discussion on abortion and what leads women — even after the feminist movement — to use “procreation as power.
However, doctors consider Vilar incredibly lucky to have children after 15 abortions. According to the physicians, women who have had multiple abortions can have cervical damage which can cause problems in future pregnancies.
