A unanimous Supreme Court decision striking down a 35-foot buffer zone around Massachusetts abortion clinics is being praised as a victory not only for pro-life counsellors but for all women.
Limiting "women’s issues" to a woman's potential to be a mother – as well as trying to deny that potential – does not empower women, a panel told members of Congress and their staff Tuesday.
Over the course of 40 years, laws have changed and society's perceptions have shifted beyond a simple division between pro-life and pro-choice. Issues such as the death penalty, assisted suicide, "do not resuscitate" medical orders and euthanasia frequently enter the right-to-life debate these days.
Marking the 40th anniversary this week of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling, The Washington Times asked leading advocates on both sides of the issue to discuss the ruling, the present state of the abortion debate and where American attitudes on abortion are heading in the coming years.
"Abortion can be the most important decision a woman makes in her life, and sometimes she rushes in there in a state of panic," Monahan explained. "This allows her to put the brakes on, to think about it, to think about what’s actually happening inside of her."
"So many women regret their abortions," she lamented.
