But apparently Harman’s position is woefully inconsistent because she defends the permissibility of abortion. Don’t follow that leap of logic? Neither do I. But it’s out there in the madness of the internet. The article, predictably, reminds us that we should all just chill the hell out about that sign because it was no big deal. Once we’ve calmed down we can begin to take more seriously our moral and teleological duties as fetus-incubators. Like nice girls.
In the midst of its madness, though, the article does afford us this gem: “Prof. Harmon’s stupidity is offensive to me” (my emphasis). Once again, irony saves the day.
