Abortion is nearly always heartbreaking for the women who make that decision as well. (*) Not heartbreaking in the sense that they spend the rest of their lives regretting it, because the vast majority don't. More that they had to make that decision, that for whatever reason, they knew deep down that circumstances were such that they couldn't continue the pregnancy or support a child.

* "Nearly always" because inevitably there seems to be someone who wants to point out that they're the exception...

I had your commentary with Mr. SOphanne at bed time last night. He was surprised when I said that I could understand how people feel so strongly about this. I believe all that you do and told him so- I just understand how others could feel so differently. I don't undersdtand their reprehnsible behavior but I do understand their convictions.
[ed.: i can totally understand the antichoice point of view. it's heartbreakingly easy to be able to see both sides.]

re- the Earthquake Fish. When that earthquake comes I'm looking for a giant "I told you so." to the scientific community. Do they not remember nature's predictors of a tsunami?
[ed.: but was that not one of the three most disgusting things you've ever seen come out of the ocean? :shudder:]

Really well put, friend.

Oh, I have such strong feelings on this topic. I don't know what I'd do in that situation, and I hope to never find out. My bottom line is the Bacon and Eggs joke -- the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed! Bottom line is that I believe abortion should be rare, but LEGAL.
[ed.: oh—amen. i cannot imagine what i would do. and the decision is different for me in my life than from someone else in a wholly different position or age. which is why i am glad that it's legal.]
