  • Slateís William Saletan refutes the mindset of pro-choice people who think pro-lifers are misogynists who donít really care about abortion:

    The assertion that pro-lifers donít really care about abortion ó that what really motivates them is misogyny, controlling other peopleís bodies, and forcing anyone who has sex to have a baby ó is morally comforting to a lot of pro-choice people. It reassures us that weíre on side of compassion, justice, and progress, and that thereís no reason to feel ambivalent about this issue. We have nothing to heed or learn from our enemies. Our only challenge is to defeat them.

    This is one of those echo-chamber beliefs that wonít survive a reality test.
