Life Links 11/9/10

Thabiti Anyabwile provides a sample of how he would compare abortion and slavery if he were white.

Michael New bats down a Washington Post editorial by Brenda Major on abortion and mental health. I found this sentence interesting in Major's piece:
Rigorous U.S. scientific studies have not substantiated the claim that abortion, compared with its alternatives, causes an increased incidence of mental health problems.
Note that Major says "U.S. scientific studies." Does she do this to intentionally rule out the studies done on New Zealand women by David Fergusson?

At a blog called Talking Philosophy, one guy is perplexed at why women are more prolife than men after taking part in an interactive survey based on Judith Jarvis Thomson's violinist thought experiment.

Bonnie Erbe has a column in which she argues asserts the #ihadanabortion Tweeter tag is the pro-choice technological answer to the ultrasound. Yeah, I know. She also blames CPCs for the rise in unwed motherhood.
