In (speaks for itself) I presented the video of Emily Lett promoting her abortion.

The video is embedded again at the bottom of this post.

I used this screen cap to reflect what I saw as the flippant attitude.

But there was another aspect I thought about but didn’t write about.

It’s reflected in the featured image.

And it is captured by Elizabeth Scalia at The Anchoress, sent to me by reader Mike:

If you let yourself become distracted by what is coming from her mouth, you miss all that is revealed in her face, which tells the whole, and very different story. A month after the abortion — with the dramatic change in hairstyle that so many women effect when emotions are high and they need to feel in control of something — watch Emily, then. The light is gone from her eyes. The seeming disconnect between pc-fed head and instinctive heart is laid out in breathtaking and stark incongruity, even down to the shadows, the blue note, the lack of energy. Devastating. Cognizant of it or not, she is a mother in grief.
