Mona Lisa Frowns

with one comment

 

In this week’s West Virginia Record, my commentary on what I call “the ugly underbelly of the abortion industry” (not that there’s an attractive part of that industry) entitled, “Mona Lisa Frowns” appears.

I begin my commentary with the following two scenarios:

Picture this. A young woman, appearing to be about 13 years old, stumbles into a medical clinic. Her hair has been pulled out in places. Her clothes torn. She bleeds from her face, has scratches all over her torso, and bears bruises that are the hallmarks of sexual abuse. Her face expresses the fear that is unique to someone having just been raped by a man more than twice her age. 

Now picture this. A young woman, appearing to be about 13 years old, walks cautiously into a medical clinic. Her hair is finely kept. Her clothes immaculate. There are no signs of blood, no scratches, or signs of abuse whatsoever. Her face expresses the fear of having to reveal that the man with whom she has just had sex — a man more than twice her age — is going to be a father.

Of course, the twist is the health care provider’s response.  To read the commentary in it’s entirety, please visit the online home of The West Virginia Record.

When you are done, watch the videos linked below, from the project, “Operation: Mona Lisa Smiles.”
