Just had a VERY long and interesting conversation with a young man who was APPALLED that Ohio has banned abortion when there's a heartbeat. He's involved with a feminist group on campus, and he "just can't figure it out" - the anti-abortion movement "makes no sense" to him - and he said he wanted to understand. He hung up on me when I called him on his own bias - he didn't want to admit that his position was based on a worldview that has been formed by where he's gone to school and what he's been taught to believe at home and by his peers. He TOTALLY discounted my religious beliefs - and didn't see the hypocrisy in that (I have to respect his worldview but he doesn't have to respect mine). I hope - and pray - that SOMETHING I said filtered through his confusion.
