Abortion Activist After Watching a Baby Die in an Abortion: It’s Just a “Minimally Invasive Surgery”
Elsewhere today, we talk about a fine essay that appeared at the Federalist in which the author explains, “Why You’ve Never Really Seen Hollywood Portray An Abortion Scene.” I encourage you to read our post. As I read Cullen Herout’s essay, I immediately thought of a story I wrote about a woman then writing for Newsweek.
I’ve covered abortion for NEWSWEEK for two years. The issue has put me in touch with a young activist in rural Colorado, an embattled clinic just outside St. Louis, and chanting crowds in Washington, D.C. Whether I’m covering abortion’s staunchest guardians or its most adamant opponents, there’s always the same passion: both sides feel abortion is an issue worth waging war over.
