Earlier today, my husband was telling me about a story he’d just read in the Wall Street Journal about attacks on crisis pregnancy centers. I’d been hearing about those too, and it was hard not to feel that evil has our country in its grip. If people are going to respond to attempts to stop abortion by trying to force it on women who have nowhere else to turn, what are we doing? Will finally overturning Roe v. Wade result in an explosion of abortion in states that make it egregiously easy and import mothers from other states? It seems like for every step good takes, evil takes three.
Then I saw a thread on Twitter (now also available in similar form on the tweeter’s Substack) about a Washington Post story that was obviously intended to show how horrible Texas’s abortion laws are for women but inadvertently told a heartwarming tale of a couple and two beautiful babies that, you know, kinda has a happy ending. And it made me think that, I don’t know, maybe good is getting its running shoes on and making this a race?
