25. Beautiful post. Kicked and nominated.
It's true that there is a huge disconnect between right wing nut whackos screaming about how abortion is murder and the real life situations where abortions are performed. It reminds me very much of the nuclear freeze time in the 1980s, when wing nuts couldn't imagine a nuclear war, which was why they were against the freeze. They just can't put themselves in another's shoes. I think it's their greatest flaw.
