    with which he's been doing this and all he's seen, I'm sure he comes at this with a very unique and even somewhat tragic perspective.  It's like this in all health care.  I can't tell you how many children's nurses I've talked to who speak with despair at the all too common and grotesque abuse cases they've seen.  Seeing women in these circumstances again and again, coupled with encountering pro-life people in the operating room really has to get to you.  I'm tremendously grateful to him for sharing his perspective and believe his ire is all too justified.  While I happily recognize my progressive religious friends as allies, I confess I don't at all understand their belief, what they gain from it, and why anyone would wish to associate themselves with something that, all things being equal, has caused far more human suffering and oppression than flourishing.
