What stuck out to me was this sentence:
"Independent abortion clinic directors like Peg Johnston in New York state—who will attend the meeting in D.C.—even use words like "baby" and "killing" because that is what many women who come to her say and feel."
Food for thought: If abortion is "killing" a "baby" then what does that make those who provide abortions?
I wonder, does Peg Johnston actually believe she is "killing" a "baby" when she performs an abortion or is she just trying to help pregnant women deal with their emotions because trying to convince pregnant women that they aren't deciding whether to end the life of human being is no longer possible?
Emily nails it when she says, "The reason that Frances Kissling's view (pro-choicers being more open about the "moral ambiguities" around abortion) is a small minority view within the contingent of professional advocates of abortion rights is that the other advocates believe that if there is moral ambiguity around abortion, it's the kind that suggests that abortion might amount to the destruction of an innocent life. And they don't want to go there, because they don't think this is a safe road to keeping abortion legal."
