I have to say I am beginning to believe that these abortions, given their excruciating moral and personal choices, may be the most defensible in context of all abortions. And yet they seem to be taking life in a more viscerally distressing way. I need time to think and rethink these things. I would not have without reading these extraordinary accounts.
What I couldn’t understand yesterday was how Andrew could hear all these tragic tales and not re-evaluate his position. These are deeply personal and horribly complex medical and moral issues that should be left to the mother and father and the doctor, not to a bunch of moral scolds, religious nuts, and outright busybodies waving placards on the street and screaming “murderers” while having absolutely no personal stake in the matter. It really should be none of their damned business.
