. . . I'll be honest. I don't particularly like kids. But I do have a thing for fetuses--and embryos. Friends are puzzled as to why, considering my indifference to children, I get all stirred up about abortion. After all, they say, fetuses and embryos aren't "children" or even "babies."Read on . . .
Bingo. The thing is, whatever these creatures are, they've got kids beat by a mile. Bear with me for a minute--especially if you're a self-absorbed broad like me. See, many a selfish chick has told me that, if knocked up, she'd go the abortion route over adoption. . . .
Feminists heralded the proliferation of abortion as a tool by which to "empower" women and give them control over their lives and destinies. But power is being pregnant. . . .
