Re: Ponnurupalooza

I had read bits and pieces a few months ago, but last night was my first in-one-sitting read of Ramesh’s new book. I know it is a wide world of books, but…read this one. Read it if you are pro-life. Read it if you are pro-choice. Read it if abortion ain’t your issue and you just rather not talk about it and maybe wonder why anyone other than a prude or a pregnant woman would.
