Do I Look Like a Baby Killer?


Every now and then, Freshly Pressed deals with controversial issues. This time the took on the abortion debate through a back door – birth control.


You are just a hard-working professor. Misunderstood by the old grandfatherly image. And your real grand parents.


But, then you move the narrative from abortion to making certain we understood clearly you are NOT a baby killer, those other women are.  You, personally, are a good woman.

Sometimes words are much more powerful than we realize. And they show what we really intend even before we let them out of our mouths.

I’m never worried about getting stopped by protestors because let’s face it: this is 2013.  This is Philadelphia.  We’re not like that here.
