Kate Mulgrew, star of the television series Star Trek: Voyager, told the American Feminist - a publication of Feminists for Life, "I practiced my belief at great cost to myself." Mulgrew had become pregnant at an early age and decided to place her baby girl for adoption. She and her daughter were reunited a few years ago.
She said that though "adoption or abortion almost always promises the mother a legacy of shame and regret, I have to be frank about my experience, I survived it. Women often don't believe that they can survive nine months of pregnancy and place the child with an adoptive family. Life is not always easy."
Life is sacred to me on all levels. Abortion does not compute with my philosophy.
