And Now for Something Completely Different: A Moderate Voice on Abortion

I’m both a feminist and a prolife advocate, and I mourn the almost total loss of the early linkage between those two movements (e.g., guess which babies, once their sex is ascertained, are more likely to be aborted?). So I am delighted to come across a thoughtful, fairminded interview with a thoughtful, fairminded prochoice scholar who advocates regard and respect for the prolife movement as a genuine heir to the civil rights movement. And in The New Yorker—a magazine I enjoy, but one not noted for its patience with a prolife outlook.
