NYTimes brainless on abortion once again

In anticipation of the Marches for Life in SF and DC, the cover article of this weekend's NYTimes Magazine tries to get mileage out of the new alliance between pro-abortion advocates and the neo-Darwinians. It's such a ridiculous piece of journalism. Sure, I'll give you your quack pro-life scientists who unscientifically claim the existence of a psychiatrically diagnosable post-abortion trauma syndrome.

But give me a break -- pro-lifers don't base their opposition to abortion on these claims nor do we base our understanding of science on their methodology. The academic experts could conjure up a study demonstrating the healthy psychological effects of abortions and it would say nothing about its morality -- which, hello Left, is what the fuss is ultimately about.

The Left continues to discredit itself with their cheap, paltry attacks on pro-lifers.
