In a sort of book end to

the Blondesense piece by Jaye Ramsay Sutter, I found this look back to pre 1973

As Reagan explains, "There's a long history of women accepting abortion and understanding it with each other, but there is not in the U.S. a long history of people talking about it and saying this is acceptable--it's alright for women to do this for whatever reason they need to, for their children, for their families, for themselves.

"They're the ones who have the capacity and have always had the responsibility to think about the consequences of pregnancy and childbirth, and make decisions. That's actually a moral responsibility and duty women have always had, and taken quite seriously. That kind of history comes out a lot more into the public in the '60s and with the legalization of abortion."

(Great round-up piece, by the way... ;)
