Abortion proponents push for easy access to abortion, deemphasizing its after-affects to the point they absolutely refuse to acknowledge post-abortion depression, which further incapacitates those actually living through it.

This is such a tragedy. Charlotte Dawson, RIP, was born in New Zealand but achieved fame in Australia as a model and a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model.

she is an idiot (was an idiot)

her husband worse

pair of murderers of their own child so that dad had a shot at a fricking meaningless Olympic medal

What ever happened to people standing up for what is right?

too damn bad is what I say, now she has killed two people, her baby and herself

I am sure satan is jumping for joy

St. Michael, the ArchAngel, defend us in battle.

“...she revealed she had had an abortion with her former husband, Olympic swimmer Scott Miller, so that he would not have any distractions in the lead up to the Sydney Olympics.”

He should be neutered so no spawn of his can enter this world. What a selfish prick.

“she had an abortion because the pregnancy would interfere with Miller’s preparation for the 2000 Olympics”

Gee, what a good reason to murder an innocent human being.

I get the feeling she wanted the baby and he didn’t. She had the zzz kriton to accommodate him. Then they didn’t stay together anyway. May she rest in peace........she is finally with the baby she wanted.

When done properly, abortion leaves one dead and at least one wounded for life.

Some Christians celebrate when a sinner recognizes their sin.

Some just gloat when Satan claims another soul.

She suffered mightily for her decision. I believe Jesus forgave her and gives her comfort.

Do you even know if she was a Christian? Atheists regret abortions, too.

if you are implying I celebrate satan in any kind of victory you are depraved and so wrong

if this murderer of her own baby asked forgiveness, she sinned again when she killed herself

take yourself and your faulty catechism and be off to lala land

The baby should have been a motivator so their logic was flawed as it is in all of these murders. Forgiving yourself is one of the hardest things to do in life even knowing that God has forgiven you if you asked for Him to do so and go on to live the opposite way.

Her ex was born in New South Wales. He competed for Australia in the 1996 Atlanta summer Olympics, winning a silver and bronze in swimming. He is now 39. She committed suicide at age 47.

She reportedly had many emotional problems since their divorce 10 years ago (they were only married a year)....depression, panic attacks, etc. However, she may have had personal instablity prior to their marriage.

After his swimming career, Miller, a snorter subsequent to being a sporter, was charged and sentenced on several occasions for possession.

He's starting to get the blame for her suicide, but to me it looks likes there were a multitude of problems all around.

Her body was found in her apartment by a security guard after her agent notified him he couldn't reach her after repeated tries.

She died broke....unable even to make her next rent payment.

Ah, the life trials of the "rich and famous".

the Catholic church has a program that helps women who have had an abortion come back to Christ, ask for forgiveness and heal..I think it is called Rachel’s Project..It may be a general Christian project. Too bad this was not available to her, she would also have been a great pro life spokesperson.

Twitter bullying??? A reason to kill yourself? Sheesh...just stay off twitter!

To me having an abortion would haunt you till the end of your days. To me there is no such thing as a fetus - it’s a baby - a little person. If the abortion is the reason then it’s not right but understandable.

she revealed she had had an abortion with her former husband, Olympic swimmer Scott Miller, so that he would not have any distractions in the lead up to the Sydney Olympics. She had been looking forward to having a baby but sensed “hesitation” in Miller.

When my wife and I attended prayer vigils outside Planned Parenthood on Saturdays, young women were always accompanied by their boy "friends," or worse, their mothers.

When my wife miscarried, she told me that her brother said to her, "Sorry about the fetus." It sent a chill down both our spines.

the baby is in Heaven and she is in hell

Romans6-13

6 But the righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) 7 “or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. 11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Having trouble conjuring up any sorrow for this woman. This is the face of abortion. She’s the poster child. This is the pain, death and tragedy it causes. A tear should be shed only for the baby she murdered.

She made a egregious mistake and could have learned and made it useful to others. She could have made a life with another and it be productive and worthwhile. Mistakes are such, one can let them own you or you can survive and make it a positive. God forgives and faith sustains.

Was it “clinical depression” or just being upset with how her life turned out?

Two completely different things.
