I think the (unspoken) premise of this article is that abortion (surgical,chemical, or referring for same) is beyond scrutiny as a matter of morality and the common good. It certainly is not and never will be. Framing the article the way it was done resulted in a condescending view of those of us who are concerned about the abortion numbers in the country and in the local community. As a resident of East Knoxville, I am happy to stand with my colleagues, Rev. Clark, Lisa, Paul and all the others who give their time and goodwill to the Cherry Street vigil every Friday. I am grateful that some people are encouraged by seeing us there. And since you bring up the word "prey" in the subtitle of your article, how about doing an article on a money-making enterprise that preys on poverty, despair and desperation? Or coercion, predators and non-reporting?
