Overheard: Pro-choice blogger says planned child was "an alien life form"

Pro-choice blogger Left Hand of Feminism discusses her two abortions and then how she felt when she was pregnant with a planned child.
The next time I got pregnant I meant to. I got really sick again–but it was, as a dear friend and ob-gyn told me, “a good sick.” I did not enjoy being pregnant. I felt invaded by an alien life form. I had been invaded by an alien life form, albeit one who shared some of my genes. But I choose to bring it to term, and I was very lucky that he turned out to be healthy and beautiful and himself. I was ready for him–although it still seemed too soon.
