Climactic Splashes

“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

This Is What an Abortion Looks Like

"In her memoir, ‘Forgetting to Be Afraid,’ which came out this week, Ms. Davis writes about the two wanted pregnancies she terminated. The first abortion ended a life-threatening ectopic pregnancy….The second pregnancy ended in the second trimester because the fetus had an acute brain abnormality.

Abortions like these represent the basic currency of the debate. These are the stories used to teach us the value of abortion, and the standard against which all other abortion stories must be gauged. By repeating only the gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, terrifying abortion stories, we protect a lie: that abortion isn’t normal. We have learned to think of abortion with shame and fear. We have accepted the damaging idea that a person who wants an abortion must grovel before the consciences of others.

I admire Ms. Davis for having the courage to say the word “abortion” over and over for 11 hours, as she did last year, while filibustering a Texas law that would have restricted access to the procedure. And I deeply respect her for telling her own stories now.

But those stories are not groundbreaking. They are politically safe, because no rational person could be anything but sympathetic and thankful that her experiences are extremely rare.

Abortion itself, however, is not rare.

- Merritt Tierce for the New York Times

Definitely read the whole thing, it so succinctly and with a subtle gentleness that hides an underlying firmness makes the case for backing off from using only particular stories of abortion to make the case for reproductive rights. It’s an excellent description in much nicer language of the oldie but goodie “abortion on demand and without apology”.

I was so ready because I had:

Seriously, though, I worked pretty hard to get back up to speed on my instrument and it took several takes to get all the tech and music just right for this. I really hope I’ve submitted everything correctly and that my audio is good enough to include (in terms of skill and file quality).

I am so pumped!
