In a New York Times story posted November 23, author Erik Eckholm told the story of a mother denied her reproductive rights.
Within the last year, Sara McKenna, United States Marine, firefighter and ivy-league student was forced to surrender custody of her son after being reprimanded for “virtually absconding with her fetus.”
After exploring a short relationship with Olympic skier and Alpine racer Bode Miller, McKenna became pregnant. The two ended their relationship, but kept in touch.
After seven months of pregnancy, McKenna alerted Miller that she intended to attend Columbia University and planned to move to New York.
