So, when your wife goes in for an abortion because the fetus she’s carrying has a congenital deformity and no chance of survival — a.k.a. when your family has had to make one of the most excruciatingly painful decisions you may ever make — and some cockfaced abortion protesters decide that now is a good time to call her a baby killer, what do you do?
What is the etiquette for such a scenario?
Well, it may not have existed up until this point, but it exists now, thanks to Aaron Gouvela who writes the blog Daddy Files. Gouvela was bringing his wife to get an abortion in Brookline, MA, after finding out that their very-much-wanted 16-week fetus had developed Sirenomelia, or Mermaid Syndrome, in which the legs are fused together. The baby also had no bladder or kidneys. And on the way into the clinic, Gouvela and his wife were confronted with just such protesters. And now, we know that the etiquette for dealing with them is this:
You drop off your wife, then take out your cell phone, turn on the camera, and tell those fuckers off. And then you post it on the internet, and then you let it spread like wildfire. And then you let the pro-life world wonder whether telling a bereft mother who, without access to abortion care, would be delivering a stillborn baby, that she’s a murderer is really, in fact, the Christian thing to do.
