Abortion E-Cards

In various messages based on what you think is the mindset of the woman involved:

One card expresses sympathy, offering the gentle reminder that, “As you grieve, remember that you are loved.” Another provides encouragement for someone who “did the right thing.” Yet another strikes a religious tone with the thought that “God will never leave you or forsake you.”

That last one’s true. That middle one’s an abomination. That first one’s rather a conundrum: if she’s grieving so much right at the time, maybe she should have waited a little and tried to come to terms with going another way. Maybe Card Sender should have helped her to a direction that didn’t involve so much grief. For people who would send a card like that, I hope their conscience is clear as to having done all they possibly could to support and encourage the would-have-been mother, to help her find peace, before the heinous act was committed.

Allah brings the blunt.

Sister Toldjah brings the blunter, with a good rundown of some home truths about abortion.
