The horrible reality of abortion

The Dawn Patrol has a great post on a young doctor aspiring to be an abortionist. (Is "aspiring" really the right word? How can anyone aspire to an evil?) It's a chilling read. It makes me think of a poem--I'm not sure of the author but it may be Walter Raleigh:

"Vice is a monster of such frightful mien,
as to be hated, needs but to be seen.
But seen too oft,
familiar with its face,
we first endure,
then pity,
then embrace."

Alexander Pope "An Essay on Man" Epistle II, line 217. I knew it was Pope but had to look in a quotations dictionary, which as a librarian I have readily at hand, to get the exact source.

Thanks, Marty, for the clarification!
