I will not be the first one, at this late stage, to highlight for Barbara Kay that abortion-rights activists will not find anything she’s written here remotely reasonable. They will fight it all tooth and nail. Let’s keep in mind that the only people happy with the status quo right now are very radical, very extreme pro-abortion types. But they have voice in the law schools, amongst judges, in the education system and finally, in the media.
Don’t just blame politicians, then, for not engaging in this debate. Blame those who uphold the status quo because every time a pro-abortion woman pipes up with just one simple word: “Discrimination!” everyone kowtows and scuttles away in scared silence. (If a pro-life woman stands up and says: “Injustice!” she’s being controlled by the patriarchy and can generally be ignored.)by
