Planned Parenthood Sells "I Had an Abortion" t-shirts
I don't normally write much about domestic policy but this is too much for me to ignore. It's an Onion headline or an old Monty Python scetch come to life; it's beyond parody. I was cruising around the Democratic UNderground looking for inside dope on the convention when I found this: Planned Parenthood is selling t-shirts with the simple message "I Had an Abortion."
Why would they do this? What are they thinking? This is exactly what the anti-abortion movement lives for - tangible proof that pro-choice supports do not take seriously the moral ramifications of abortion, that they treat abortion casually, that the ending of a kind of life is reducible to a slogan on a t-shirt. I'm (reluctantly) pro-choice and this is just plain repulsive.
You wouldn't wear a shirt that says "I Drowned Puppies." PETA would lynch you, but this is acceptable? Words fail me...
