Abortion

This blog is still shiny and new, so why not decorate it with some an uplifting post about abortion? 

Obviously (at least, I hope it’s obvious), there’s no rational person out there encouraging abortions in all cases of pregnancy. Rather, there are folks who argue that abortion should be allowed for various reasons and under various circumstances, and folks who instead argue that abortion should be illegal.

Here’s a good but too-snarky article (with video!) that shows most anti-abortionists don’t have a good answer to the question: “What should the punishment be for a woman who has an illegal abortion?”
