Me, Myself and I

It should come as no surprise that one of the paramount "virtues" driving the pro-abortion movement is the exaltation of Self (capitalization intentional) over all else.

JivinJ at JivinJehoshaphat has a revealing post commenting on an article in World Magazine. JivinJ points to a disturbing interview within the World Magazine article of I' founder Patricia Beninato.

WORLD: There is no longer a debate about whether a fetus is a living baby. Yet, a September 2004 Salon article notes that "most abortions in America are about convenience." Morally speaking, what do you think about that?

Beninato: It doesn't bother me. I believe in the Planned Parenthood axiom "every child a wanted child." We see all too often what happens to an unwanted child, the horrors that are inflicted upon them. Yes, a fetus is alive. But weeds are life and mold is life and bugs are life and we destroy those on a regular basis. Pro-lifers want to give the impression that abortion is someone ripping a full-term baby out of a woman's womb and dashing its brains out against the nearest wall, when in actuality the average abortion -- nearly 90 percent -- is done within the first trimester.
