Waste Not, Want Not; Georgetown University's Hook-up Culture; and Aborted Baby Parts

And odd confluence of events, all of which revolve around the sheer usefulness of the human body.

It can give pleasure, when a sexual event "happens", (if you read the whole thing you'll see that apparently no one "did" anything to cause the life to begin, that would have inconvenienced a young woman, and probably the young man with whom she had no "relationship" as well, terribly):
I cannot help but harbor resentment and sadness at the hypocrisy.* When the Office of the President sent an email advertising for an event, called “Resisting the ‘Throwaway Culture,’” on April 5 calling for an end to violence and citing “the destruction of unborn children,” I recoiled. When I sat down to write this and realized it had been eight months and 15 days since a six-week pregnancy was terminated and what that timeline means for me now, I sat there looking at my calendar unable to comprehend how different my life could have been.
A baby just happened, so his mother unhappened him?
And of course, the civil debate at Georgetown to which the Empress of Abortistan will contribute is coming up.
The news that Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards will speak at Georgetown University reignited a perennial debate about freedom and identity in religious universities, particularly Catholic institutions....On the same day of Richards’ speech (April 20), Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood staffer turned abortion opponent, is also expected to speak.

Planned Parenthood: like the Plains Indians, usin' every part of the Buffalo!
Because isn't is a good thing when an organization that takes government money is thrifty, and takes the initiative to get a few bucks for something that would otherwise go to waste?
And now we have this:
Georgetown University will rename two buildings named for school presidents who organized the sale of Jesuit-owned slaves to help pay off campus debt in the 1830s, the university’s president announced.
I don't think the usefulness of slaves, both as labor and as an almost liquid asset when you need funds quickly can be overestimated.

*I've tried, I've re-read it, I just can't see what the hypocrisy is whihc she condemns. Let me know if you figure it out.
