A Family Speaks Out

The family of Laura Hope Smith, a 22-year old woman who died from an abortion last month in Massachusetts, is speaking out:
Eileen Smith told the [National Catholic Register] newspaper that she's upset at the lack of media coverage, other than initial reports in and other alternative media.

“I don’t want Laura’s death swept under the rug, she told the Register.

“If Laura had died falling off a bike or in a car accident, it would have been in the paper the next day. This is a political hot potato,” she said.

According to Smith, a reporter from the local Cape Cod Times approached her two days after her daughter died for an interview. However, the article never ran in the newspaper.

“My daughter walked into that office healthy and she left dead. I don’t want her death to be in vain," Smith added.
