Barry, glad to know that you listen to Rush. He talked about this last week. I like the first line about each person's experience is unique. I bet it's unique for the unwanted clump of tissue also. How about treating it as the victim?
I know that they need emotional support, but a card? "Sorry that you decided to terminate your pregnancy. Don't worry, science and the law say that your fetus wasn't technically a living being. Just for good measure, don't tell your priest."
I would bet that those organized churchy people would send someone who had an abortion a "GO TO HELL FREE CARD" instead of a sympathy card.
nope the go to hell card is not needed. it would appear they bought their own go to hell card and punched their own ticket.
Hey, anons 3:04, 3:13, and 6:03 -- y'all like this one better? "Sorry your stepdad's 'bad touching' got you in a bit of a bind -- but enjoy the blessed miracle of God anyhoo! You can always get back on the cross-country team next year, in seventh grade."
6:03 what's the difference? A card or believing that is true?
Gleetampex, Ever heard of adoption?
Anon 4:06: Though it took awhile to recover from the crushing blow dealt to my ego by the superb cleverness of the twist on my screen name, I have come back to myself enough to respond ... Yes, I've heard of adoption! Amazing, ain't it? I've also heard of "compassion," and "not forcing a child to bear a rapist's baby," and "not forcing a person to be born of rape." But then, I'm pretty well-read. These cards -- the real ones, if I may return to the original issue, are bizarre -- and I can't imagine actually sending or receiving one. You gotta wonder what that marketing meeting was like.
