From A Woman's Point of View
Dr. Suzanne Poppema, author of Why I Am An Abortion Doctor, was also a friend of Dr. George Tiller. Dr. Poppema has treated many womenâ€™s reproductive issues, including providing abortions for her patients. As a family physician, Dr. Poppema has defended her patientsâ€™ right to reproductive healthcare through legislative testimony, involvement in numerous medical organizations and media interviews.
She says, â€œUntil we have a foolproof, easy-to-use form of birth control â€“ in my opinion, that would be a pill paid for by insurance, taken only once a year, with absolutely no side effects or adverse reactions, and absolutely no failures â€“ then we cannot condemn women for having unintended pregnancies."
