Tender mercies

A pro-abortion column in the "Times" of London elicits the following curious comment from reader Barbara: "There’s a 21-year-old girl next door who has three kids and she just doesn’t seem very interested. In some ways that’s even worse than a termination as she’s not offering these kids any kind of a life."

True, Barbara may be an atypically dozy bint, but her fatuous remark is really not all that far off from mainstream "pro-choice" thinking. Remember the slogan "every child a wanted child?" Because sometimes, you know, you have to kill the child in order to save it -- from disability, poverty, parental indifference, or other fates far worse than death.
