In Our Midst has just concluded a lengthy, detailed series on telling our children about abortion. I don't want to oversimplify by putting a one-line summation on a series that is very well-thought-out with nuanced arguments. But, this series makes a strong case for telling our children. I think it would be fair to say that the bottom-line conclusion is: you really ought to tell your children, barring unusual circumstances.

This "ought" shouldn't be viewed as yet another on a lengthy list of burdensome obligations. Rather, it should be viewed as the conclusion of an argument that points out a lot of really good reasons for telling your children, and not very many reasons not to tell them.

I'd say that this series breaks new ground.
