Amy Welborn connects to this piece from the New York Times about a woman's choice to "selectively reduce" two of her triplets."

The subject of the article is Amy Richards. Richards also had an abortion when she was 18. (See last paragraph).

Several commentors at Amy Welborn's blog are using phrases like "sheer, naked evil" to describe Amy Richards and the killing by potassium chloride of two of her three triplets. The idea is that some women are young, frightened, confused and pressured when they have an abortion, but Amy Richards doesn't have these excuses.

What I've seen so often is that women (like Amy Richards) who have abortions when they are young, frightened, confused and pressured are much more likely to have subsequent abortions when they become pregnant and the pregnancy is problematic in some way.

Once you've stepped over that line, it's hard to step back.
