Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Will Saletan writes columns about abortion on a fairly regular basis. Usually, I have some issue with them, but this time he nearly gets it right. It’s about Representative Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who was recently incorrectly condemned as “pro-abortion”. Saletan’s column correctly concludes that Ryan was kicked out of Democrats for Life because he disagreed with them on contraception. But Saletan does not go far enough and explain why those so-called pro-life groups are against reducing the need for abortions. That’s because, as this chart indicates, they are really motivated by a puritanal view of sexuality; they want to punish women who dare to fuck for fun.
