Here. Two representative paragraphs:
The actuality in elective abortion is that the woman is not willing to derail her life because of an unwanted pregnancy, a life she had worked for many years to shape, perhaps studied and worked. That now is an actuality different from the situation of most women fifty years ago. The womens revolution has happened. And in the "town meeting" the womens voice, and that of those who understand what the womens revolution means, will be heard and heeded.
Now, no woman is obliged to have an abortion if her convictions are opposed. The convictions of many women, no doubt a majority, are not opposed. There is the political problem for those who would outlaw abortion. And of course the womens revolution has happened. We are living with its results. The year 1950 is not going to be restored, any more than the ancient regime was going to be restored after the Revolution. I didnt think I needed to say that revolutions have consequences. As Burke said in effect, to resist the inevitable effects of revolution is to throw sand into a hurricane.
In his view, opinion seems to be fixed, in an almost reductive way, largely determined by interest and largely unchangeable by argument.
Theres also a rather harsh swipe at Richard John Neuhaus, who hasnt yet responded at
Ill be watching to see how this develops.
