Dear Abby and Planned Parenthood

  /   Thursday November 27, 2003  

I’ve never thought that Ann Landers (now deceased) or Dear Abby gave solid moral advice. In fact, I’m not even sure what their credentials are for giving any kind of advice. However, people do still write to people like this.

Here we find that Dear Abby referred a woman to Planned Parenthood. From what I understand, she did not suggest a crisis pregnancy center but only Planned Parenthood. What do you suppose that Planned Parenthood will counsel this girl to do?

The biggest outrage comes from her responses to the pro-life letters she received:

A woman who is not in charge of her reproductive life is not in charge of her life. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the average woman, without birth control, would have between 12 and 15 pregnancies in her lifetime.”

Sick, huh? Well, I’m all in favor of a woman being in charge of her “reproductive life.” It’s called chastity. It works better than anything out there, and it isn’t morally repugnant. Abortion is not a personal choice any more than it would be a personal choice if I were to decide to go out and shoot someone tonight.

UPDATE: Perhaps Abby thinks that abortion tickles, just like this shirt that Dennis mentioned on his blog said. That kind of thing is low and slimy even for Satan. That’s just like saying that the electric chair tickles, the guillotine tickles, lethal injection tickles, or, more like it, being drawn and quartered tickles.
