"The Abortion Debate No One Wants to Have"

I think I would like to become more articulate on this subject, even if I'm not sure I have a clear stand to articulate. Reading stuff like this scares the pants off of me in, I think, a good way.

EDIT: Less sure about this one, why would the Washington Post do without a little fact checking on prenatal testing? I still think that this person has a good point, but she's relying to heavily on the assumptions of social conservatism. I point out the "blue state California" bit. When you start talking like that, you've lost me.

Cyberpunk Gnosticism

"For Case, who'd lived in the bodiless exultation of cyberspace, it was the Fall. In the bars he'd frequented as a cowboy hotshot, the elite stance involved a certain relaxed contempt for the flesh. The body was meat. Case fell into the prison of his own flesh."
-William Gibson, Neuromancer (p.6)
