  1. A family that kills one of its own is hardly a “functioning family.”

    You will all be affected by the killing whether you acknowledge it or not.


  2. Hm…Kelsey needs more pro-life commenters on her blog, but I’m a bit frightened to wade in there, myself.  Some of those folks are very long-winded.

  3. You will all be affected by the killing whether you acknowledge it or not.

    That’s true, I told you about my mother’s abortion and the effect it has on me, at least.

    Is biology destiny? I don’t think so, but abortion goes against our instinct (and that includes men) to protect the defenseless and dependent. The uterus is even designed to protect the unborn child during pregnancy — it has to be forced open during an abortion.

    The urge to protect and nurture the young is universal — that’s why child molesters fill most of us with rage and revulsion.

    I wonder what this couple tells there children about the sibling that was aborted because he/she was “defective” . . .

  4. As you can see, most people do not view Down Syndrome as the wonderful gift from heaven that hard-line abortion opponents consider it to be. I was taking heat for expressing this same view last night, being called a Nazi, fascist, and any number of other nasty things, but it’s far more mainstream and socially acceptable than “Down Syndrome is a blessing!”

  5. As YOU can see, if one is pro-life one doesn’t give a rat’s behind what other people think.  So, Joan, how long ago was your abortion?
