Is it just us or does it seem odd that FiveThirtyEight would choose Christmas, the day when Christians around the world celebrate the birth of “a dark-skinned, Black, North African man with dreadlocks,” to ask for stories about ending life? It actually a good idea to talk about abortion, and FiveThirtyEight got responses from people who wanted to tell their stories. They probably weren’t all what they expected, though.

The replies just go on and on … it’s the best ratio we’ve seen. Now we wonder what FiveThirtyEight will do with all of this material?
