THE TRAUMA OF REGRET
To get to the truth of a matter, you need to hear both sides of the story. And that’s especially true with abortion.

Last week on BreakPoint, I told you about the convocation address I gave at the University of the South in Sewanee. The theme of my talk was the importance of civil discourse and freedom of speech, and how without them, we cannot have a healthy and free society.
I told my audience that I do in fact see efforts, especially on college campuses, but also in the media, to silence opposing voices on a whole host of issues.
And nowhere is this more evident than with abortion. And it’s not just that pro-life advocates are often shouted down or kept off campuses or the airwaves. No, what really concerns me—actually, what really pains me—is that we don’t hear about a whole class of people who suffer deeply from the wounds of abortion. And that is the women who deeply regret terminating the lives of their babies.
Instead, we are treated to accounts of just how wonderful abortion is. The daughter of a friend of mine attends a chic-chic school here in Manhattan and she was made to watch a video of women raving about what a great decision it was to have an abortion—with no opposing viewpoint. It is heartless propaganda.
