The National Review does it again! In a piece that just went up on the once-admired conservative journal's website, Kevin Burke theorizes that much of the hostility felt towards VP nominee Sarah Palin on the part of American women can be blamed on their own repressed "post-abortion" grief. "These powerful repressed feelings of grief, guilt and shame can be deflected from the source of the wound (i.e., abortion) and projected onto an often uncharitable focus upon the trigger of these painful emotions…the Palin family," he writes. We have nothing intelligent to say on the matter, really, but we're sure you do. [National Review]
Oh for FUCK'S SAKE! This is quite possibly the most insulting thing I have ever heard. I have had an abortion OK? I wasn't going to die, I wasn't raped, I was a young kid who was doing a lot of drugs and being stupid and wasn't ready for a baby. I will be damned if I am going to relive that decision every minute for the rest of my life. News Flash: SOME PEOPLE ARE OK WITH THEIR DECISIONS!
I love it when MEN wax theoretical about abortions. Like they just don't understand that there are somethings they don't have control over and it makes them INSANE!
