Every child deserves to be wanted, safe and loved. I don't deny there are damaged women out there who use abortion as a means of birth control. A former friend had five abortions. Those pregnancies were her cry for help. But I can't help thinking those babies were better off not being in her care.

Leave it to radio personality Rush Limbaugh to turn a serious policy issue into a personal attack. But the moral character of Sandra Fluke doesn't matter. What should worry the rest of us is her apparent belief that we all are obligated to make sure that she can have sex for free.

As long as there are those who are steeped in the culturally-conditioned beliefs that power resides in gender, and that half the population of the world is fundamentally flawed because of it, humanity has not turned the corner toward a more enlightened consciousness.
