“Most people are not analytical thinkers; they tend to know what they want to do and then look for justifications.”

Mary Ann Bailey “Why I Had Amniocentesis” in E Parens and A Asch (eds.) Prenatal Testing and Disability Rights (Washington, DC: Georgetown University Press, 2000) 70

She explains how many women having abortions want to abort, and make the decision, and then look for reasons to support that decision.
