Many moons ago, SICLE Mom Ashli wrote a column on her blog compiling instances of abortion clinic workers who have gone into the territory of being nine cents short of a dime. Her column was subsequently cited by Joyce, a Canadian prochoice activist. That sparked a dialogue between Joyce and Ashli, the results of which are here.

You should read it for yourself. You might be struck, as I was, by Joyce's inability to muster good arguments. For instance, she says that abortion is not violence, because when she looks "violence" up in the dictionary, it doesn't say "abortion".

Soon, though, she abandons argument for invective, and says that women who regret and don't take responsibility for their abortions are "neurotic, weak, destructive, and selfish" and issues various taunts. Not pretty.
