A regular reader asked me why Times and Seasons let yesterday’s anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, honored in much of the blogosphere as “Blog for Choice Day,” go by without any comment. I replied that probably the main reason was that everything has already been said which can be said here on that topic. Really, he replied? When? Oh, you recent arrivals, I thought to myself…
See here for Kaimi Wenger’s early discussion of whether or not one can be a pro-choice Mormon.
See here for Matt Evans’s argument that the “therapeutic” abortion claim is more often than not a way to avoid having “difficult” children, such as those with Down’s Syndrome.
See here for Kristine Haglund Harris’s suggestion that many discussions of abortion fail to recognize the practical realities of the matter.
See here for Adam Greenwood’s thoughts on why those who believe most abortions are tantamount to murder don’t necessarily have to believe that people who nonetheless choose abortion are murderers.
And now that you’re all fired up, see here for Jim Faulconer’s warning that talking too much about controversial issues like abortion makes it too easy for partisans on all sides to forget basic lessons in civility.
Go forth and read.
