"I’ve had several cases over the years in which the anti-abortion patient had rationalized in one way or another that her case was the only exception, but the one that really made an impression was the college senior who was the president of her campus Right-to-Life organization, meaning that she had worked very hard in that organization for several years. As I was completing her procedure, I asked what she planned to do about her high office in the RTL organization. Her response was a wide-eyed, ‘You’re not going to tell them, are you!?’ When assured that I was not, she breathed a sigh of relief, explaining how important that position was to her and how she wouldn’t want this to interfere with it"
The Only Moral Abortion is My Abortion - When the Anti-Choice Choose (via abaldwin360)
There is really something to this…I’ve known quite a few adamantly pro-life people who have either already had, or went on to have, abortions - and some of them are very vocally and politically pro-life. I am not talking about those who deeply regret something, here; I’m talking about people who think what they did was for the best or the only choice they have, even though they continue to believe abortion, overall, is wrong.
It’s something to think about.
