I received this question from reader Rebecca:

I’d like to ask if you could have a weekend question about at what age children are ready to know about abortion. I know this depends on the child but it would be interesting to hear from other parents when and how they told their children about abortion and their children’s reaction. Or if they wish they had waited or told them earlier.

It’s a good question. I’ve never asked it in a headline, although it did come up in the body of the post, “How do you tell children about abortion?”

Your thoughts? Your experiences?
