In regard to the abortion issue, there’s a paragraph in Erich Maria Remarque’s 1945 novel “Arch of Triumph” that expresses my opinion on the subject much better than I could.

“Ravic studied the peeling brown paint on the door, the tin letter box and the round enameled label with the name. A great deal of misery and fear had passed through this door. A few senseless laws which forced so many lives into the hands of quacks instead of doctors. No more children were born because of it. Whoever did not want a child found a way, law or no law. The only difference was that the lives of some thousands of mothers were ruined every year.”

I wish certain politicians and opinion writers would read that and, even less likely, understand what it said.
