Worth Repeating

The following quote (some versions longer) has been going around the Internet and may be worth repeating. It was seen on Gloria Steinem’s Facebook page. Steinem says she’s not the author but is grateful to whomever is. While it’s not the parallel it purports to be, it does provoke much thought:

“I want young men who buy a gun to be treated like young women who seek an abortion: a mandatory 48-hours waiting period, written permission from a parent or a judge, a note from a doctor proving that he understands what he is about to do, time spent watching a video on individual and mass murders, traveling hundreds of miles at his own expense to the nearest gun shop, and walking through protestors holding photos of loved ones killed by guns, protestors who call him a murderer.”
