My Womb, dammit!

Here is an interview from today’s Lincoln Journal Star regarding David Hahn’s position on abortion. For once, religion is invoked in the right way on this. Hahn has compared abortion to divorce as relates to government involvement in the lives of private citizens, a comparison I’m inclined to believe is quite apt. Indeed, if one is to take religious text literally as basis for governmental control, divorce too ought to be outlawed. (I realize that there are likely some contingents who would love for this to happen, but I’m willing to bet the majority would not.) In fact, however, we as a society tend to value autonomous decision-making, and in that sense, abortion should be no exception.
And for your moment of Zen: a photo from the Sandhills…
