Imagine

Imagine you’re shopping at the grocery store.  You’re almost eight months along in your pregnancy with your third child.  Suddenly you’re arrested by the local government and, after being imprisoned for four days, taken to a hospital where you’re given a shot to cause an abortion.  You go into labor and hope the baby will somehow be born alive.  But hours later you deliver a dead baby, whose body is all black and blue.

This happened to Pan Chunyan in the province of Fujian, China, last April.*

Despite having to listen to Mittens singing “America the Beautiful” and lying about the President, we don’t have it so bad.

Actually, we have it better than any other people in the history of the world.  And we will even if Mittens wins.
