Why I had an abortion – “I don’t share our story now because it is unique; I share it because it isn’t. The voice of parents who have wrestled with these impossible situations is one rarely heard in the din of political jockeying.” From Buzz.
Why I still need the atheist movement – “…a lot of us who were raised religious don’t have the option of leaving that community. The fact I haven’t walked away from atheism isn’t because it’s not awful?—?it’s because I have no choice. For all the bullshit, this is still better than the religious community I come from.”
