Via The Corner, comes this jaw-dropping story:

“Have you guys heard the news?” Maggie (name changed) unwrapped the scarf from around her neck and patted her flat belly. “Preggers.” It was around 30 degrees outside, and her cheeks were splashed pink from the Indiana wind.

She had discovered earlier that week, after missing a period and taking the test. “I kind of knew already. My boobs and my lower back have been killing me for a while.” She shrugged.

My girlfriend Ali and I exchanged a surprised look. Our forks, dotted with pasta sauce, dangled identically, flaccidly, in our hands. She was quicker than me to gain her composure, and turned to address her best friend.

“What are you going to do?” Unnecessary question, really — a conversational life vest, used when you’re sputtering for something to say. We knew the answer. Maggie, a 22-year-old college senior with no intention of bringing a child into the world yet, was going to have an abortion. She told us that she had already made up her mind; she had even determined the time, date and location. A better question might have been, “How are you going to pay for it?”

She answered that one before we had a chance to ask. “We’re having a party Friday to raise money,” Maggie said. “You guys are obviously invited.”

An abortion party. For the price of whatever we were willing to donate, she explained, we could partake of baked goods, beer and dancing. It was going to start at 10 p.m. at Maggie’s.

There’s not even a thought about the life this 22-year-old will be carelessly snuffing out.

It’s instead an opportunity to have a little party and raise some money to get rid of the “inconvenience.”

The “pro-choice” lobby always tells us how this is a “difficult decision” and a “tragedy” (the only greater tragedy would be for the woman not to have the right to do it). It is a private matter between a woman and her doctor — and all the friends she’s invited over Friday night to party on down!

    Apparently this fool has never heard of birth control nor has the intelligence or psychological fortitude to keep her legs shut during the times when she is ovulating.

    The only “good” thing about this situation is that she is not going to be contributing to the shallow end of the gene pool from whence she came from…yet.

  3. […] T-shirts and bumper stickers, but an abortion party is an entirely new concept to me. Yet, somehow, several conservative bloggers seem perfectly unsurprised, albeit outraged, by the personal essay on […]
