Rachael, one of our readers/sometime commenters, has what's turned out to be a very important post on her Web Journal about abortion as a solution to rape. The subsequent discussion in the comments box is difficult but revealing, especially the contribution made by Jude, in response to a woman commenter who became pregnant from a rape, chose abortion and is very upset and angry. Jude replies to her calmly and compassionately, saying, "...since you say that only rape victims should have a voice here, I choose to speak.

Tread lightly, all. Please. Remember, feelings are not right or wrong, they just are, even if there doesn't seem (to me and to others) to be much Rachael or anyone did to warrant the reaction she got.
