By definition some post must be the caboose on the National Right to Life News Today train. But doesn’t mean it is less important. Today’s last call is a is a very brief few comments and a link to a beautiful story written by Kathryn Jean Lopez, editor of National Review Online.
The headline is “A revolution of love just what doctor ordered,” and can be read in its entirety here.
What she accomplishes so nicely is to compare and contrast. Lopez begins with what we wrote about last week—a report that found webcam abortions to be wonderful beyond words.” The clinical efficiency with which the story was written was jarringly chilling,” Lopez observes.
She contrasts that with the humanity of Louisiana’s new “Sign of Hope Act”. That law, Lopez observes, “Written in the reality, too, that abortion isn’t a rewind button, what has happened and will be done will have impact.”
Thus, because of that the Signs of Hope Act, “women can’t get an abortion without a gentle reminder about options. In other words: actual choice. Written in the reality, too, that for some women, who are being coerced in one way or another, a sign may be a real liberation for a woman. For all the use and abuse of the word in relation to the issue of abortion, here it is, codified, complete with a website.”
I don’t want to spoil the story, so take four minutes and go here.
