Catastrophizing in today's headlines.

A few days ago I noticed that another blogger, The Bionic Octopus, had written a few words about psychological trauma after abortion. Since that's our area of special interest on this blog, I linked to and reflected on what she had to say.

Here's a link to her original post. One or two readers of this blog visited hers, and posted some comments. All in a day's work, right?

Checking back with the Bionic Octopus, I find this:

The forces of anti-choice are virulently on the move, as amply evidenced by the number of people who've read that post of mine since it was linked on an anti-choice website a few days ago. The pro-life harpies swarm and shriek, but of course there's not the slightest percentage in arguing with them.
Whoa. Is she talking about this blog? I mean, seriously. We have around 500 or 600 readers on a normal day, and maybe 10% of them would have clicked through on that link.

This is what we call Ca...tas...tro...phi...zing.
