I'm Glad I Wasn't Aborted.

Andrea Bocelli tells a "little story" about how glad he was that his mother didn't abort him.

He emphasizes that life is complicated and that he's glad she made a choice. It's a common "pro-life" argument: what if all the great minds of the world were aborted? It may be a compelling story, that we have a fabulous entertainer like Bocelli because one strong woman, his mother, stood up in the face of medical complications and chose to, along with her child, to suffer the consequences. But the underlying messaging of this reasoning is the very effective call for self-sacrifice. Of course Mama Bocelli should have had a choice. And that, after all, is the point.
