Donna sends along this prochoice info/ad with a bit of [what she herself described as] a rant (smile):
“I don’t think NARAL has been able to afford to buy time on any of the major networks, but wouldn’t it be ‘fair and balanced’ if the mainstream media at least covered the assault on a woman’s right to choose? Instead, I see newspapers calling women’s clinics “abortion clinics”, and the media using right-wing euphemisms (couched in legislation like the “Unborn Victims of Violence” Act and the so-called “Partial Birth Abortion” ban) without questioning their effect on women’s lives. Allegedly, Conservatives want less government, but where women are concerned, they seem to feel justified in imposing their view of morality on everyone. I happen to remember what life was like before Roe v. Wade, as well as when it was still illegal even for married people to possess condoms without a doctor’s perscription (no, I am not making this up). I would hope the moderates and civil libertarians out there are not going to permit the religious extremists (who seem to be running the country) to go unchallenged. Why don’t the media pay more attention to this administration’s efforts to roll back women’s reproductive rights? [rant mode off]”
