This is what I’m talking about: exercising your choices in favour of doing the right thing.
Women, empowered to choose life, in spite of obstacles, in spite of inconvenience, in spite of it all. In spite of knowing that your baby won’t make it, after carrying him for nine months. Is there not something heroic and honourable there? This is the substance of the choice that Somerville refers to in this article. And that’s the very same substance that ardent pro-abortion types won’t discuss, preferring instead to focus on how very different women’s “personal, individual realities” are.
I prefer to focus on what I can see, and what is true. Like the fact that disabled or not, this baby is still kicking in the womb.
