“We Like Abortion”

Weloveabortion1…Writing in the politically progressive In These Times, Sady Doyle reviews a pro-abortion book [Katha Pollitt’s, “Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights”] and enthuses, that she really likes fetus killing. From, “Abortion Isn’t a Necessary Evil: It’s Great:”

“Personally, I like abortion. I’ve never needed one. I’m still glad to have the option. I’m glad for the people I’ve known who got pregnant at the wrong time, with the wrong people, and didn’t have their lives ruined by it.

“If Pollitt gets her way, more of us might feel free to admit that, hey: We like abortion.”

But some women have had their lives ruined by their abortions. They regret it every day.

I understand why someone who doesn’t think a fetus is a human life would think it should be legal, or even if human, available in restricted circumstances.

But pro-abortionists know human fetuses are fully human–and they still celebrate the killings. That’s very ugly.

Abortion–like slavery in the 19th century–has profoundly distorted and decayed our society’s moral sensibilities. It isn’t a healthy thing.

Editor’s note. This appeared on Wesley’s great blog.
