Rev. Pat Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, had this to say about the struggle over reproductive rights in America:
"We don't have to see a Roe v. Wade overturned in the Supreme Court to end it. … We want to. But if we chip away and chip away, we'll find out that Roe really has no impact. And that's what we are doing."
The sad thing is, this is exactly what has been happening. Last year at least 11 states passed laws restricting or regulating a woman's right to choose. This year, a whopping 500 pieces of anti-choice legislation have been introduced.
Many people say that the gay rights movement is the civil rights movement of our era. I think the culture wars have exploded-- and that we may be seeing a war against our sisters' right to choose what they may or may not do with their bodies. This is kind of terrifying.
