Dr. J. received this email from the one and so far, only, the Great and Mighty Borepatch. We hope you read him everyday, just as we do!
And by hope, we mean, “You will read Borepatch everyday…”
I was moved by your post on the struggles that women have with their past abortions. It brought to mind the expression “one dead, one wounded” that you sometimes hear.
It also made me think on how Satan is rightfully called the Deceiver. These women were told that it was no trouble, that it was right, that it was their choice. That message was whispered in their hearts. Some of them to this day hear a whispering in their hearts that the easy way was the right way.
As one of those who grew up very liberal, I find it saddening that so many who pride themselves on their desire to protect the weak find it so easy to listen to those whispers, and to ignore the weakest of all. I find it saddening that so many who see themselves as firmly more enlightened and thoughtful that the rest of society find it so easy to listen to those whispers.
I must confess that I find it gratifying (if unworthy) to reduce to spittle-flecked rage those Global Warming advocates who like to prattle on about the “Precautionary Principle” – that if we’re not sure, we should err on the side of doing least harm, by asking them to apply that Principle to the issue of abortion.
Thank you for your post.
