You know that one person who thinks every single issue must relate back to the one issue they obsess about? We all do. Here’s Janet Morana, executive director of Priests for Life, claiming that the shooting of Australian baseball player Chris Lane by three apparently nihilistic kids is because they “could have been aborted.” Asked on Fox News (of course) why their parents were keeping an eye on them, she said:
Well first we have to start with the fact that since 1973, these kids are survivors, they could have been aborted, and that’s a fact. The people don’t realize…they’re post Roe v Wade and therefore there’s a thing called ‘survivor syndrome.’ There’s a psychiatrist up in Canada, Dr. Phillip Nay has studied this for decades and shown the effect that just the fact that you could have been aborted can affect you as a survivor of Roe v Wade.
Uh, Janet…everyone could have been aborted. And everyone could have been aborted before Roe v Wade too, it just would have been far worse for the mother. Everyone, therefore, should suffer from this “survivor syndrome” that you pulled from your rectal cavity because you’re obsessed enough to blame anything and everyone on abortion.
