I have a letter to the editor in today’s Post. The original looked like this:
Though Stephanie Gray’s manner of fighting abortion is drastically different from my own, I fully support her. Gray is not saying abortion is exactly like the Holocaust or slavery. She is saying that where we fail to see people as people, atrocities easily occur—today, as in history.
At risk of sitting on the fence, I just don’t see much of a debate here. Killing our children is at the heart of abortion. And that is what is so unpopular, not the manner in which we draw attention it. Offering truly compassionate options so that women don’t have to kill their babies is one solution. Gray helps us to be compassionate insofar as she reminds us about the facts on what abortion is—facts so many today readily choose to ignore.
