In my small home town last weekend, two groups of protesters set up on opposite sides of the street in the middle of the town — the pro-life group (anti-abortion) and the free-choice group (pro-abortion).
The pro-life group had a placard that read: “70 million babies have been slaughtered in the US since 1970”. One of the signs in the free-choice group had a drawing of a wire coat hanger and the words “Never Again!”.
Pretty had to ignore such a wholesale slaughter of fetuses — literally millions; but it’s also repugnant to think about going back to the days when women would submit to self-mutilation with a wire coat hanger because they had no other choice.
So all of that leaves me exactly nowhere on the issue of abortion.
