Better Off Dead Than Unwanted?

From H:
Quote from Feb. 10 editorial in the L.A. Times by Anne Lamott, on the subject of abortion:

"It is a moral necessity that we not be forced to bring children into the world for whom we cannot be responsible and adoring and present. We must not inflict life on children who will be resented; we must not inflict unwanted children on society."

I'm still trying to get over the shock of reading her piece. So I'll just offer this brief comment from

"Being against 'inflicting life' is creepy in itself, but extrapolate that line of thinking—that death is better than resentment, that society must not be burdened by the unwanted—and you'll probably need to go lie down."
