The latest in the abortion debate seems a bit bizarre. Exhale, a post-abortion counseling group, is now offering a variety of supportive E-cards to send to women who have recently undergone an abortion. The cards include attractive pictures of flowers or mountains. One version expresses the sentiment:

I think you’re strong, smart, thoughtful, and caring. I believe in you and your ability to make the best decision. I think you did the right thing.

Another version:

There are no words to express my sympathy for your loss. As you grieve, remember that you are loved. I am thinking of you.

Which version should you send? I guess it depends on however the woman undergoing the abortion regards her actions. It does seem paradoxical to affirm abortion in one card, and yet see it as a great loss in another.

The Web site claims to be “non-judgmental.” Links are provided to Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation. I found no direct links to religious or pro-life resources.
