Anti-choicers in AZ Legislature reach a sick new low

“Sentimentality is the superstructure erected upon brutality.” Carl Jung Opinions differ on how that Jung quote should be interpreted but I do think a fitting one is how brutal people swathe their intentions in maudlin sentimentality, perhaps as much to fool themselves as others.
