National Catholic Register

So, I'm reading along in my favorite weekly Catholic newspaper and there's a column by Eve Tushnet about post-abortion trauma.

"The National Catholic Register is already the publication that does much more than any other to draw attention to this issue," I think. "And how great that Eve Tushnet, an ornament of the Church, is writing about it."

I settle into my chair with pleasure, and Wow! Eve Tushnet is quoting me!.

Eve's column explores whether people feel bad after abortion only because of the social stigma attached. She agrees with my article on this that points out that there's a mismatch between how some of us feel after abortion, and how people more typically react when they have done something they know that others disapprove of.
