Best thing I have read all day...

Neil Simpson has a great analysis of a recent Time Magazine article.

This paragraph particularly resonates with me:

The author probably doesn’t realize it, but there is something perverse about asking the money question after the women are pregnant. They are assuming what they should be proving, namely that the unborn aren’t humans worthy or protection. If they want to use costs as a reason for birth control, that is one set of arguments. But once the human being exists we shouldn’t be debating whether or not to kill her to save money. After all, if we are just after cost savings, why not kill poor people outside the womb?

Amen. What makes us fell the need to place an economic value on a life? Anyway, Neil says what I would like to have the eloquence to say.

Go. Read.
