Indeed, Quin! It's so much easier to do vile things when they don't
make us vomit. (my dad was pro-choice until he was in med school
and had to help a doc perform an abortion ... The Thing's very
human hand waved at him while it died on the table.)
My 18-y-o son, still definitely working on the "potential" part of his own life, asked me yesterday please not to abort him.
I promised to think it over very seriously.
