A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Really.

Look—brain scanning unborn babies!

Even though it's late-term, I wish this kind of science would, even for a moment, spur policymakers and the public at large to consider, even for a moment, the possibility that we've been doing something horribly, horribly wrong in allowing the termination of unborn lives as a legal option. They have minds! But science only matters when it supports what we want, and if that grotesque, destructive policy tells us anything, it's that we want what we want, no matter the cost. God, help us.


I've been spared a lot of drama because I keep my friends list down to (mostly) people I already know and I lock everything up, but even with that, every now and then things get said that have nothing to do with the words actually on the screen. Sometimes it's me taking things badly, and I've realized that there are some people with whom I just relate better in real life.
