Pro-life author Janet Morana told the following story. At the time she recalls, she was working as a teacher in a public school in New York City
My good friend and team teacher Denise would adamantly proclaim herself to be pro-choice, while I was the token pro-lifer in our school.
One spring semester, we decided to hatch chickens in our classroom. We ordered all the appropriate equipment, including our precious fertilized chick eggs…
One morning, when we entered the classroom, Denise and I noticed a problem with one of the eggs. The shell was cracked open and we could see a yellow yolk sac and a bloody mass pulsing like a beating heart. In fact, it was the beating heart of a chick that was not going to develop further.
Denise and I were both upset, not knowing what to do. Denise gasped, “It’s still alive!”
I knew that but also knew there was nothing we could do to save it. Within moments, the chick’s heart stopped beating. Denise was very upset at the loss of this chick in the very early stages of development.
So how can Denise be pro-choice on abortion? She was obviously a very sensitive person, but when it came to abortion, logic seemed to vanish
