STRUGGLING
Stories like this are a struggle for me.

On the one hand, I want to shout it from the rooftops. It shows how Planned Parenthood really isn't all that interested in "women's health." It shows the lie of "safe" abortion.

On the other hand, it feels exploited. A woman had died, and I want to use her death to score political points? Sure, the pro-choice crowd does this all the time with their "back alley" rhetoric, but I want to be better than that. This woman didn't ask to be a pro-life talisman. In fact, her taking of the pill probably reveals that's about the last think she'd like to be.

Is there a way to tell this story that doesn't exploit?
