I’ve been watching the Sen. Barbara Boxer vs Carly Fiorina debate for California Senator, and one thing escapes me.
Sen. Barbara Boxer, when asked about Roe vs. Wade, stated that without “A woman’s right to choose” our society would digress to the point where women would die from illegal abortions, as in the past.
What bugs me about this, and I must say that I come from a feminist Protestant background, is that in her statement, she is implying that only one person is dying in the “back street abortions.” When in fact, and in reality, 2 people, both the mother AND child are dying, in these “back street abortions” of the past.
How can people not see this simple fact? That, in actuality, 2 human lives are lost in that type of illegal/historical procedure.
