OMG, I can’t believe I wrote this. A friend of mine is editing my novel, and she has found some truly hilarious typos. But none of them compare to the one I just found myself.
So I have been in an abortion debate with a guy over at Secular Ethics and Fair and Unbalanced. The weird thing is, we agree with each other, so I really don’t know why we’re arguing. No, I do. We’re talking about personhood and I said, well if abortion is murder, than a miscarriage is manslaughter. He disagrees. So I’m telling him that there are certain things that women are not supposed to do while pregnant and that doing them could harm the baby. If she does them, I wrote, she could be said to have “a wonton disregard for human life.” I cannot believe I wrote that. In my defense, I was pretty hungry when I wrote that.
I am so ashamed.
