Having taken the time to educate myself upon some of the uglier, more despicable aspects of our society, I often consider myself beyond being surprised by anything. However, regardless of how much vileness I witness, I still manage to occasionally be surprised. Today was one of those days.
As a tribute to the late Dr. George Tiller (recently murdered physician known for performing late term and partial birth abortions) The Philadelphia's Women's Center gave away free abortions on Tuesday. Any pregnant woman who visited their facility from the time it opened until late afternoon got treated to a complimentary abortion in honor of Dr. Tiller.
Disturbing, horrific....but also very, very fitting. What more appropriate tribute could there be to a man who dedicated much of his medical profession to the aborting of late term babies than to offer up the termination of the unborn for free? Very, very fitting.
Now, I'm not interested in debating pro-life or pro-choice here and regardless of where you stand on Dr. Tiller's abortion practices, ANYONE should find it horrific to see life treated in such a cold and callous fashion. It's a little hard to empathize with the pro-choice arguments about 'poor women, all alone, devastated by the horrific choices they have to make.....' when the Philly clinic is giving abortions away like door prizes to the first lucky customers of the day.
Here's an article on the matter.....hat tip to Elusive Wapiti and his Friday Roundup.
