An interesting, long reflection from a blogger who has been accused of harboring judgmental attitudes toward post-abortive women. The post divides post-abortive women into two categories--those who are repentant and those who are not repentant--and talks about the differing emotional reactions the blogger experiences toward them.

Repentant means "feeling or expressing humble or regretful pain or sorrow for sins or offense."

I have mixed feelings about this. I'm thinking about my reaction and will try to write more later about this. My mixed feelings might be based on my perception that in many ways, repentance is the tip of the iceberg in terms of coming to a place of reconciliation after an abortion.
