Abortion, zealots and Randall Terry by Peter Guinta, a senior writer for The St. Augustine Record in Florida.

Guinta talks about the time he and his wife almost aborted (they were told that their child had been damaged by radiation) and how he was anti-abortion for some years after that. Then, he realized that not all children were born into stable homes where they were wanted by their parents, and decided to be pro-choice.

That's just such a weak argument. If there were a "childhood misery index (CMI)", a calculus of all the factors that make for happy versus unhappy childhoods--divorce, infidelity, parents who are emotional basketcases, parental alcoholism, etc., etc., etc.--would anyone seriously maintain that the CMI has declined since Roe v Wade?
