And, last post of the week: a deeply disturbing account in the daily Standard of a story in the Times (of course) of a young girl being talked into an abortion by her parents. It sent chills down my spine. The author is absolutely right: the really hard-core supporters of abortion rights (like the Times) are not pro-choice. They are pro-abortion. They think abortion is the only correct solution to an unplanned pregnancy. I once heard Rebecca Walker (daughter of Alice, the author) say that it was a positive good for women to have abortions because the only way to protect a right is to exercise it. I don't know what else to call such a viewpoint but evil.
