… [T]he root of abortion can be summed up in two words: human selfishness.

Everything is about my hopes, my plans, my dreams – things that will be dust in a few decades – and a baby is going to mess all that up.

Some ancient cultures used to sacrifice their children to appease their gods; now, we sacrifice them for personal convenience.

We just like to do it in a sterile office before we see their faces and hold them in our arms, hoping to lessen the guilt that is inescapable anyway.

~ Christopher Diamond, writing in a letter to the editor of Al.com, November 16
