"Feeling Blue" About Being Told How To Feel

Late-term abortion is one of those relatively uncommon but endlessly regulated procedures that tends to lay bare the perils of trying to apply judicial logic to how someone must feel. First swinging Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy — whose powers of intellect, it should be stated, are not much esteemed by either side — decides states should be allowed to have a late-term abortion too, but Barack Obama feels compelled to offer that doesn't mean you get to have a late-term abortion for just "feeling blue." To all this I can only say: when it comes to matters of sex and reproduction, can people respectfully stop presupposing how "women" surely must feel and start actually listening to them?
