    Woman Had 15 Abortions Over 17 Years

    * By LILY FU

    (MYFOX NATIONAL) - A woman who is a self-described "abortion addict" has written a book in which she details having 15 terminations over 17 years.

    In her book called " Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict ," Irene Vilar, 40, said she got pregnant and had the abortions as a way of rebelling against her "controlling" husband who didn't want children, according to the Daily Mail.

    From the age of 16 until 33, Vilar ended the pregnancies and also attempted suicide several times. She claims that her husband, a 50-year-old Latin American literature professor, told her that having children killed sexual desire. So she stopped taking her birth control pills as a way of defying him.

    "But slowly, my days took on a balancing act and there was a specific high. I would get my period and be sad, then discover I was pregnant, being afraid, yet also so excited," Vilar said.

    She said she carried out the abortions so that her husband wouldn't end their marriage, but isn't clear about whether he knew of them or not. "Of course, this did not mean I wanted to do it again and again ... A druggie also wants to stop every time," she added.

    Vilar eventually left her husband after 11 years and remarried in 2003. She now lives in Denver and has two children and two stepchildren.

    "Women have written memoirs about their anorexia or their bulimia, and they explain the best that they can what motivated their addiction or their behavior. I try to do the same in this book," she said.

    Pro-life supporter Charmaine Yost of Americans United for Life told the Los Angeles Times that Vilar's story is "tragic." "It really underscores everything we always say in the pro-life movement -- that abortion is part of a very sad story for women," she said.

    Vilar herself told ABC News that she was afraid of becoming an unintended symbol for the pro-life movement. "I just imagine the 'baby killer' and I could be a poster child for that kind of fundamentalism," she said.

    Feminist author Robin Morgan said that many pro-choice supporters are feeling uncomfortable with what Vilar did, with some saying Vilar has abused women's right to choose. But Vilar said that access of legal abortions saved her life since one way or another, she would have ended all of the pregnancies.

    The Guttmacher Institute reports that nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended, and 40 percent of them are terminated by abortion.

    She needs psychological help, not news stories or a book deal. And something about this is screaming BS to me.

    Whoopi Goldburg has had anywhere from 6 to 8 abortions, depending on the source.

    I think she's only admitted to six of them.

    Sherri Shepherd, another "The View" freak,has said she has "Had more more abortions than I would like to count"

    If true, what could those children have become? Could one of them have created a cure for cancer, another clean energy...another the second coming of our savior?

    Thats how I can be against abortion and for the death penalty. Every child deserves a chance....and when you have used your chances to destroy other people...you need to die.

    book summary:

    nutcase bitch gets knocked up then terminates the pregnancy a lot. she then blames everyone else for her behavior rather then hold herself accountable. the end.

    save yourself the $10

    who the hell would buy this?

    i respect your opinion above as i do regarding most issues. and apparently im gonna go against the grain here, but dont you think its a little harsh to say "if you get an abortion you should die"? i would say in my own personal life, i am pro-life (and would never support an abortion of a fetus that i helped create), but when it comes to everyone else, i guess im pro-choice. not because i think women should just go out having abortions all willy nilly, but more because i see the reasoning behind it in specific and limited situations.

    Well....I should have been more clear on that Tapout. No I do not think you should die for an abortion....but given your chance at birth, if you committ some of the horrible crimes that we see every day....your time is up!

    Every child should be allowed to be born....there is divinity in every child as part of God's gift of life. But if you screw that chance up....you gotta pay.

    This thread could get to be a heated debate. I will toss my 2 cents in. I am pro-choice, my own choice being I would never abort a fetus. I do however respect the right of women to choose one way or the other. That said, I think that this woman, if it is true, abused the system. I have known other women who used abortion as their birth control. I don't believe thats what abortion rights is about. I think it is more for the young girl who made the mistake of thinking she was old enough to handle sex and was uninformed, the rape victim, and the medically necessry.

    My dad, I miss him every day.
