I would just like to say that this is a choice COALITION, meaning that there are
many different organizations represented, like ISO, FMLA, Planned Parenthood. I
also think that it is detrimental to the movement for abortion rights if you
completely isolate it and cannot link it to any other movement. The aboartion
rights movement IS A POLITICAL movemen! It is not an ethical or moral movement,
it is very much political. Morals and ethics only enter into it if an
individual has to make a personal decision for abortion.
We are just letting people know about things that may be of interest to you.
Because abotion rights is so closely linked with other issues, ie: the death
penalty, it is natural that people in the coalition would be interested in it.
But we can talk more about this later.
