A New Script For Talking About Abortion

In the US, abortion is framed as a deeply moral and highly emotional issue. In the public imagination, the choice to have an abortion is a wrenching one, one that often leaves women feeling emotionally fragile for months and years afterward. No doubt this is sometimes the case. But for many women, my friend included, it is not a wrenching or painful decision, but an easy and obvious and matter of fact one.


Remember when television networks refused to air paid ad spaces encouraging folks to buy nothing, not buy fur, and not vote for Bush? Well, Christian fundamentalist anti-abortion ads are ok.
