I cannot lie. I am friends with the author of this piece. (At least, I think I am, and hope she feels the same way.) That said, it’s a very good piece. Most Canadians would indeed fail an “abortion quiz.”
Now this topic doesn’t “just come up” very often (unless of course you socialize with me, and then it comes up more often than I am comfortable with. “What did you do today?” “I blogged…” “What’s your blog?” “Er, it’s a home decorating thing…” No, it’s not, it’s called ProWomanProLife. I advocate for the position that being pro-life is very pro-woman. This leads to a quizzical and concerned silence. At that point I usually wish I had a home decorating blog. Or perhaps a cake baking blog. There’s a blog for everything, and I could certainly use some advice on how to successfully create these for an upcoming baby shower I’m planning.)
I digress. Where was I? Abortion doesn’t normally come up very often. When it does, or if it does, take a casual poll of whether people know it’s legal all nine months in Canada, and I will bet all 14 dollars of my savings on the fact that no one will, and they will be aghast. Try it and let me know how it goes.
(Tips on the baby block mini cakes also most welcome.)
