Feeling the need to rant ...

Ugh. I was reading a story about a woman who* was perfectly justified in having an abortion (it was save her life), and I came across this gem:

"You shouldn’t need to know the details of why a woman aborts to trust her to make the best decision for herself."

I wonder how many other areas of life we could carry this over into ...

You shouldn't need to know the details of why a woman shoplifts to trust her to make the best decision for herself!
You shouldn't need to know the details of why a child bullies to trust her to make the decision for herself!
You shouldn't need to know the details of why a man rapes to trust him to make the best decision for himself!

When your decisions hurt people other than yourself, making the best decision for yourself isn't good enough.


* Assuming the story was reported accurately etc. etc.
