The Darker Side of American Pregnancy

Continuing a trend, I found a New York Times article on infertility and abortion recommended in another blog and wanted to recommend it here as well. There are some startling statistics quoted in it which play into the writer’s larger, grimmer picture of the state of pregnancy in our society. It is surprisingly low on bias and rhetoric, though all the while being starkly realistic about the status quo. I found the conclusion to be both true and, in its implications, disturbing:

This is the paradox of America’s unborn. No life is so desperately sought after, so hungrily desired, so carefully nurtured. And yet no life is so legally unprotected, and so frequently destroyed.
