She's Live-Tweeting Her Abortion on Twitter (Video)

Blogger and mother of a 4-year-old, Angie the Anti Theist is live-tweeting her abortion. She says she's doing it to demystify abortion, to make the point that "it's just not that bad." That's 1970s talk. After Roe became the law of the land back in 1973, women talked like that all the time. With courageous women like Angie leading the way, maybe we'll eventually get back to the way we were in the 1970s. (See comments at YouTube)
