Abortion is good
William Saletan and Katha Pollitt are arguing about whether the pro-choice movement should denounce abortion as horrible and icky. Saletan thinks we pro-choicers would make friends with moderates if we reassured them that we hate abortion as much as they do.
I don't care what's strategically advantageous. I don't hate abortion and I refuse to pretend that I do. Abortion is good. So are sex ed and birth control. And the women's health movement has always championed all three.
Those who exhort the pro-choice movement to "do more" to prevent unwanted pregnancy are either uninformed or disingenuous.
