Once upon a time there was a man who was alive.

Culture of Death

The editor of a medical journal that published an article this week saying fetuses likely don't feel pain until late in pregnancy said Thursday she has received dozens of angry e-mails from abortion opponents.

Dr. Catherine DeAngelis, editor in chief of The Journal of the American Medical Association, said she had to take a walk around the block after receiving dozens of "horrible, vindictive" messages.

"One woman said she would pray for my soul," DeAngelis said. "I could use all the prayers I can get." DeAngelis said she is a staunch Roman Catholic and strongly opposes abortion, though she also supports women's right to choose.

"Your licence should be stripped," DeAngelis said, reading aloud from the 50 or so e-mails that came to her office. "You're hypocrisy," "You should get a real job," "Eternity will definitely bring justice for you," others wrote.

Good grief. Where does one start? That "I'm praying for you" is now "hate mail"? That the worse she could must was "Eternity will definitely bring justice for you"? A staunch Roman Catholic who "personally" opposes abortion but doesn't really? Language is also a casualty in the culture of death.
