Silent Smile, a welcome column from The American Prowler. (The American Prowler is The American Spectator's online presence.)

It's about a pro-life conference held last weekend by The American Cause. The panelists talked about the emotional aftermath of abortion in this vein:

"Chief among these was the inclusion of women recounting the terrible fallout of their own abortions. The emotionally charged atmosphere sent many attendees into tears. Try maintaining your composure while a young woman describes Planned Parenthood staff advising her as a 16-year-old seeking an abortion (sans her parents' consent) to keep her crying down as she received the injection that would still the beating heart of her child.

'Is it a baby?' she asked the Planned Parenthood counselor, who, notably, refused to allow her to see the sonogram confirming her pregnancy. 'No, it's just a clump of cells,' she was told. 'They tell you that, but they don't tell you what it’s like to have to abort your baby at home, alone,' she said.

Most abortion is not murder; it's negligent homicide. Murder requires premeditation and an understanding that one is terminating a life. The trend in our society has clearly been toward getting over our 'love affair with the fetus,' as former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders so eloquently put it."
