(I wrote this in June 2008)
On Friday I saw three dead baby birds rotting on the pavement. They hadn’t gotten their feathers yet, just pink and a little grey fuzz. Either some heartless janitor, or the storm winds had knocked down their nest. Just looking at them hurt. If they hadn’t been birds, or hadn’t been half-developed, it would have been so much easier to see. Isn’t that strange?
It brought up again some of the habitual things i think about–life, development, vulnerability, death. This led to some mindless web browsing and I wound up on naral.com (or prochoiceamerica?).
I decided that I am definitely voting for McCain.
I was considering not voting at all. I don’t like McCain….he doesn’t seem the most honorable or trustworthy or stable man on the planet. Obama seems really nice, except he stands for everything I don’t (Obama was for partial birth abortion…that is a seven/eight month preemie).
Anyway, this clinched it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/arianna-huffington/unmasking-mccain-his-reac_b_103580.html?page=8
that deserves a vote.
Watch this youtube video of the University of Washington’s fetus collection.
Its not gory, its a scientific collection at a medical institution.
I think it says it all. The video is very sad and beautiful. Yes, It would be better to bury them in a churchyardLater
