Here at ERI we like to help pro-life people not be weird. About 5 years ago, a Students for Life staff person reached out to me asking for an example of a weird thing pro-life people do. The first thing that came to my mind was what we call fetus tunnel vision.

This was something I had been thinking about for years. In the first several years after 9/11, every time the anniversary came around I would see a lot of pro-life people posting on social media comparing the number of people who died on 9/11 to the number of babies aborted every day. This article and the following in the series explain why this is a bad idea.
