Mona Charen on Planned Parenthood

Ms. Behar speaks for many when she smears abortion opponents as “evil, immoral, unethical,” and “stupid.” Now there’s a moral inversion of the first order: Those who justify killing a developing child because his or her life poses a temporary inconvenience are waxing indignant and morally outraged at those who oppose such a gruesome act.

When she visited the United States near the end of the 20th century, Mother Teresa pleaded with Americans to reject abortion as “violence.” And so it is.

If asked to kill a baby robin in its nest, they’d probably recoil with horror.
