Article Excerpt:

[NPR, "All Things Considered," May 8, 1996]

 

On the issue of abortion, I’ve been around the block. At one point, I believed that abortion was necessary to set women free from the burden of unplanned pregnancy. But gradually I changed; I realized that abortion is at root an act of violence, killing children and violating women’s bodies--and their hearts. As such, I couldn’t accept it as a legitimate way of solving social problems. Unnecessary surgery that kills your own child is a cheap substitute for providing women with life-affirming alternatives.

 

 

But perhaps because I’d been on both sides of this issue, I still had sympathy for my pro-choice friends.
