Theological Notebook--Late Abortion for Treatable Defect
kesil points out that the British will not prosecute a 3rd trimester abortion for a cleft lip. Boy! After the 3 surgeries and 4 hospitalizations I've endured this year, I sure wish my Mom had had the freedom to kill me for my lack of perfections, and in order to mercifully save me from a life clearly not worth living. That she had to endure such an inability in expressing her full womanhood in this highest of expressions of freedom simply for being pre-Row v. Wade must be a real trial for her. I imagine every time she thinks of my health struggles over the last year, she wishes that she had been free to do the right thing for me. I mean for her. No, for me. Whatever.
