No Good Deed Goes Unpunished by Zoe Heller.

Make sure to read the entire article.

It was brought to my attention by the Traditional Christian Gentleman who writes the Times Against Humanity blog. He comments:

"It was only a matter of time until a woman with child would be refused the protective solicitude her condition demands."

Traditional Christian Gentleman chalks this up to a general devaluation of motherhood.

In specific cases, though, refusing to aid a pregnant woman in the easy and obvious ways is something that women I know have shamefacedly confessed after they have started to deal with their own sense of loss from abortion.

"Why should I stand up on the bus for her? She chose to continue her pregnancy; let her deal with the consequences."

That's an attitude some of us have had.
