TRIGGER WARNING: In which I discuss distortions of the facts with regard to abortion.
For John, BLUF: You have to listen to every argument, but then you have to discard a lot of them for just being flat out factless. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The InstaPundit is on the abortion issue this morning, and not without reason. The reason is the distortion of information to allow the intellectually lazy to feel good about abortions, rather than seeing them as the small or large tragedies they are.♠ This item is from News Busters, where Reporter Katie Yoder does a fisking of CNN's Sally Kohn in "Sally Kohn Blames Planned Parenthood Videos on ‘Patriarchy,’ ‘White Supremacy’".
Well, I do have to give credit to the "White Supremacy" argument, given that Ms Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, wanted to reduce the number of Black babies.
The early 1900s are not over, they have just changed cloths.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

♠ Yes, I grant that for some it is a medical necessity, the Mother against the unborn child. I wonder if we ignore the fact that it may not be a slam-dunk decision for the Mother. Might she not feel a twinge of regret along with the relief that a life threatening situation has been overcome. A small twinge for what might have been?
