Marx, Flanigan, abortion, ethics


Dr. Richard Flanigan looked up from the magazine he had been perusing. Several cancellations at the women’s center that afternoon left him with some free time before his next appointment. Flanigan felt disgust for the young women who had called that morning to say they had a change of heart about the procedure. Oh well! So what if a few easily swayed teens fell for the pro-life rhetoric? With the free time, he sat down at the receptionist’s desk, preparing to while away the hour with some light reading. An older man, with a bushy beard and dressed in old fashioned clothes, appeared in the clinic waiting room. The stranger bore a striking resemblance to a picture Flanigan remembered from an old college textbook – a picture of Karl Marx.
