    I try to stay away from writing about abortion. In my experience, you will never change anyone's mind on the matter. And frankly, I really don't have strong feelings on abortion either way. With a couple of exceptions: I think partial birth abortion is horrifying. And, now, I'm even more horrified by this actions of this woman, who had a "selective pregnancy reduction" to kill two of her triplets. Her reason, she didn't want to have to:

    move to Staten Island. I'll never leave my house because I'll have to care for these children. I'll have to start shopping only at Costco and buying big jars of mayonnaise.

    The next question that may pop in your head is why this woman didn't just put two of the babies up for adoption. Well, here again, she didn't want to inconvenienced in any way by this pregnancy:

    I would have to go on bed rest in March. I lecture at colleges, and my biggest months are March and April. I would have to give up my main income for the rest of the year. There was a part of me that was sure I could work around that. But it was a matter of, Do I want to?

    Read that again. She lectures at colleges. This stupid, selfish, careless bitch who went off the pill because "because it made me moody" teaches other people. I don't care what subject she lectures on, this woman is in no position to tell anyone how to do anything.

    And, not only should she not teach, she also can't learn. She ends her article with this gem:

    I had a boy, and everything is fine. But thinking about becoming pregnant again is terrifying. Am I going to have quintuplets? I would do the same thing if I had triplets again, but if I had twins, I would probably have twins. Then again, I don't know.

    People like this give choice a bad name. What a piece of work this woman is. To deliberately stop using birth control, get pregnant and then kill two of your children is bad enough. But she's learned absolutely nothing. She'd get pregnant again and do the whole thing over.

    I seriously question why someone like her can have a healthy baby and why wonderful couples go through hell each month trying to conceive.

    I think whatever way you look at it abortion is a selfish act.
