Mourn, damn you, mourn!

Blogger gets pregnant. Blogger plans abortion. Blogger miscarries instead. Blogger tweets, roughly, "whew!" Blogger gets piled on by commenters for not having the appropriate grief reaction.

This reminds me of nothing so much as Melissa Lafsky's reaction when Kerry Howley said, no, she wasn't traumatized by donating her eggs. How dare women not act the way their social role requires! How dare they be honest about their feelings! Don't they know that every egg is sacred, whether you want a baby or not? (Do these folks think that every time a woman's period is late, she should rend her hair when it finally comes---just in case?)
