Amanda Marcotte's reaction to the Mechelle Hall case

Mechelle Hall was the woman who threatend Leah Winandy with knife at an abortion clinic and eventually decided to keep the baby.

Uber Pro-Abort Amanda Marcotte's reaction?

Convincing unstable, violent women to have children, one crazy incident at a time. Good work, antis!

Had Mechelle Hall chosen abortion, she would have been uber-supportive. But she chose life, so now she's some potential child abuser. Way to be supportive of "choice", Amanda!

Aren't we supposed to "Trust Women"? Oh right, women are infallible except when they make decisions we disagree with.

And she linked to this blogpost from Salon.

Much like Abby Johnson's incredibly unreliable tale of converting from Planned Parenthood clinic director to antiabortion protester, this story plays to the anti-choice mythology that pro-choicers will convert if only they're exposed to the reality of abortion.


After the Abby Johnson yarn, any "pro-life" conversion story should be met with a healthy dose of skepticism

And what evidence is offered to refute the story?


That's right. They don't like what happened, so....itjustdidn'thappenthere!

That is so weak. It's another game of Lying Liars Lying their Lies. If you say it often enough, people will believe it.

Except when people look at the evidence.
