My Body Is My Biz

I believed and still believe that what I do with my body is my business. Yet, after I no longer was involved in adult film production, I encountered very few people to whom I could mention my adventures in the skin trade, much less that before Roe v. Wade, I had an illegal abortion, and once it was legal, I had two more. Three!? I recall my own reaction to a European friend who told me when we met in 1970 that she'd had five abortions. How could she have been so careless?
