Happy Valentine’s Day!
Let me let you folks in on a secret: When I wrote this, I was still pretty damned conservative. I know! Surprise! And as generally included within the Conservative Beliefs Bundle, I was still kinda pretty strongly Pro-Life. And as this story was meant to be sort of a story about Mary being kind of okay now, clearly for her to be morally in the right she should have kept her Accident Baby. But, as I wrote this, I put myself in Mary’s position, and conceded that she might feel differently than me. So I had her do what I figured she felt was logical, my personal feelings be damned. And as a result, I grew a little empathy.
