Me: I think abortion is a terrible evil, so I think we should work as hard as we can to create a society where mothers and children are welcomed so that they don’t feel like they need to make that choice.

Giant Internet Hand of Spanking: How dare you! You think abortion should be legal?

Me: No, I never said that, but I think the best way to help is to work to create a society where mothers and children are welcomed so that they don’t feel like they need to make that choice.
