The Abortion of Sanity

Just in time for the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the New York Times Magazine has decided to tell women suffering from Post Abortion Syndrome that it's all in their heads.

Women, according to writer Emily Bazelon , aren't really traumatized by killing their offspring; it's no worse psychologically than giving birth. Chances are, the ones who suffer after their abortions would have turned out to be losers anyway, but the abortion gives them something to latch onto and blame for all their problems.

'Cause we all know how normal women feel about paying someone to destroy the unborn human they're carrying. They ignore it. They create little rituals to help them feel better about it, like voting for Democrats or subscribing to the New York Times.
