Kate Michelman On Radio Tonight On Roe vs. Wade’s 35th
It’s sad that on the 35th anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade we are still fighting for women’s rights. Frances Kisling, former president of Catholics for a Free Choice and Kate Michelman, the former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America have a piece in Tuesday’s LA Times. We view ourselves as an enlightened society, and yet:
the United States has some of the most restrictive policies on abortion in the developed world. In contrast to Europe, the U.S. forbids the use of federal funds for abortions, and the Supreme Court has upheld state laws that require parental consent or notification, mandatory waiting periods and antiabortion counseling. The court’s 2007 decision on so-called partial-birth abortions was an unprecedented infringement on physician autonomy.
Have you noticed that some of the most vocal anti-choicers are men? And the movement is often based on misogyny.
