Why don’t more people want to discuss the wonderful spirituality of Appalachia? We’re the land where North and South collide, where East and West mingle. We have as rich a history as anywhere else in the country. We are Christian root workers and Redneck witches. We have our own myths of the…

Also, Lily Potter would have never wanted an abortion, because she was a financially well-off woman starting a family in a happy marriage with a secure place at the top of wizarding society.
The question you should be asking is what if Merope Gaunt, an impoverished and uneducated single woman who escaped from a severely abusive family only to become pregnant with the unwanted child of a man who wanted nothing to do with her, had had access to an abortion and not had immense social pressure brainwashing her into carrying to term?

I do this. I mean, I love to read. It’s one of my favorite things. But I kind of have no reverence for books. That’s why I buy cheap ones. I just devour the story and the physicality of the book suffers because of it. Oops.
