A young woman's recent decision to film her abortion and share it with the world has been making headlines lately and, over the course of the past few days, I've observed the puzzled, horrified, and downright hateful reactions of many on my social networks.

Those who refuse to look at limits in abortion are stuck in the rut of Manichean thinking.
