A Hole In One. This new blogger is a thoughtful and intelligent 29-year-old graduate student with a committed boyfriend who will most likely abort within the next few days or week.
One thing that surprised me very much in reading her blog is her ignorance of fetal development:
I have seen sites on the net masquerading as pro-choice sites, showing arms and legs of fetuses in pregnancies terminated at 9 or 10 weeks. But I have also seen Body Worlds, where the fetus was really not discernible as having human form until well into the second trimester. Why does that matter? Somehow, it does.I don't think this woman is in psychologically-driven denial about the reality of fetal development. It seems more that, as with many women who abort, she truly doesn't know that babies terminated at 9 or 10 weeks have arms and legs...not just arms and legs but easily discernible arms and legs.
