It is becoming almost commonplace for liberals who writeÂ aboutÂ abortion to offer a personal story, often told rather breezily,Â about procuring/cooperating in/undergoing an abortion.Â These op-eds have become a form of confession.Â New York Times editor Bill Keller, some time back,Â wrote a second-thoughts column about abortionÂ similar to Cohen’s.Â But what jumps out inÂ these columns, which invariably stress that the author is still “pro-choice,”Â is the absence of any direct mention of the victim of the injustice, the unborn child. Hillary Clinton, orÂ Cohen,Â or any other liberalÂ reworking their position,Â will speak of abortion as a tragedy. But for whom?Â The child? No, they can’t quite say that, otherwise their pro-choice position crumbles. TheÂ victim, normally so prominentÂ when liberalsÂ allow people to feel their moralÂ agony,Â is left hidden.
