The Anti-Choice Strategy

“The anti-choice strategy has been to close as many clinics as possible and to sideline as many providers as possible by crafting “abortion regulations” that force women to view ultrasounds, listen to inaccurate medical scripts, and find time to undergo multiple appointments; that force doctors to attempt to obtain ever-elusive hospital admitting privileges; and that force clinics to widen hallways and rejigger broom closets. And all this has been done under the guise of a tender concern for women, their vulnerable bodies and unstable emotions, and the theory that just a few more regulations, warnings, and inches added to the clinic corridors will make them safer and more comfortable in the cruel world of abortion mills.”
