I’m really looking forward to seeing this documentary. Andrew Klavan talks about how he’s preparing the movie and shares how he was pro-choice for years. After an argument that he lost to a Catholic friend, he became pro-life.
I think this going to be a powerful (and respectful) movie.
I read this story first thing this morning. I thought: “Should I post this so people know?” and decided not to. Too sick.
A little later, my 18 year old daughter talked to me about her job, which she loves. She serves at a deli counter. She talked about crazy customers, rude and aggressive. Then she told me about the ignorant comments from some of the men. For example, when referring to how much Kolbassa he wanted, a guy said “the size of my penis”. She also mentioned that the girls would NOT call out number 69. They would wait for the guy in the department to call it out.
Our daughters are in this culture. But I have serious concerns for our sons too. So I posted this. So you know.
Andrea adds: It may be taking more than a few days as we iron things out over here. If you recently heard me speak and I said I would respond to the emails you sent me at this site, which I always do, please be advised that I can momentarily not access those emails… and you may choose to resend in a week or two! (Apologies, and thank you!) Also, if something doesn’t work for you, please send us an email with a brief description of the problem.
This article is not about abortion. It’s about India, and why her booms have been busts. But this part interests:
The dystopic details don’t end there. The use of new technology to abort fetuses selectively has led to a rapidly declining female-to-male birth ratio, with a nationwide average of 914 girls per 1,000 boys in 2011, as opposed to 940 to 950 girls in European countries—and with Gujarat, its development such a shining exemplar in the Modi campaign, boasting an average of 891 girls in 2011, among the lowest such numbers in India. At the same time, India—and especially in states like Gujarat—is a growing provider of rent-a-womb services for wealthy European and North American couples.
Of course, this is the result of an abhorrent bias/hatred against women. Were abortion not available, infanticide through exposure like in First Century Rome would likely be the means to rid our world of women. But abortion access facilitates these deaths. I don’t think you can get away from that fact without jamming your head pretty deep in the sand.
