"I Don't Know If I'm Pro-Choice Anymore"

This is a pretty haunting essay. 

It's an essay full of words, but the words evoke in my mind a very acute mental picture. It's the coin dropping. Through the lines I can feel the mind changing.

I haven't read anything by this author previously, but I can really feel the self-doubt and horror emanating through the words.

I don't know how anyone could be "pro-choice" after those videos. (Even before, frankly.) And the whole language 'pro-choice' is so deceptive anyway, as is the 'incest-rape' thing. If you're pro-life then you are pro-life even when 'incest-rape'. I also don't know how a vociferously pro-life person could be married to a 'pro-choice' person. That seems to me to be a pretty unbridgeable gap.

Do read the whole thing.
