I appreciate the kind words from Eve Tushnet.

She compares this site to other post-abortion websites. I'd like to say something about them.

I have permalinks on the left to post-abortion ministry websites. With a few exceptions, these are websites that direct the reader to real-world support groups.

Real-world support and recovery groups are an absolutely vital part of recovery from the emotional wounds of abortion. Online message boards or blogs like this one play an important role in pulling together stories, personal reactions, and news. They let people who are suffering from these emotional wounds know that they are not alone and that help is available.

Although anyone reading these words is obviously an internet-oriented person, I have to again emphasize how important it is to seek out real-world recovery.

I do, however, have a pet peeve about the post-abortion ministry websites, which is that for the most part they don't mention each other. This suggests that they have never heard of each other, which is like saying that Hillary didn't know until that sad July morning. Do they object to each other? Are they competitive? Who knows?
