Saturday Big Blue Smurf Blogging: What They Said
Posted by Jill | 11:31 AM
Today's honoree: Ramona, who writes about Women and Children and the Choices we Make.

Money quote:

The feminist movement and Roe v. Wade, if they hadn't ever done anything else, can be credited with changing the prevailing perception that there were no choices for a person in a woman's body. The fact that the works for conceiving were built into them no longer meant that women would be forced to conceive.

That is the underlying wisdom of freedom of choice and it's what the Supreme Court saw as a constitutional right.

If, since Roe v. Wade, every child born in this country was afforded the kinds of protections necessary to ensure health and happiness, safety and well-being, the argument that a fetus must be saved at all costs might hold water.
