Here are two thoughtful pieces for your consideration, both poignant and touching for different reasons.
As is usually the case, the allegedly meanest "conservatives" always seem to care more about the rights of women-to live and to be free.
It is conservatives, not women on the left, who stand for women's right to be born, and their right to be free.
Consider Dalrymple on The Silence of the Feminists:
"She begged to be allowed to go to work, but at first her family said
that this would heighten the shame she had brought on them by running
away and refusing to marry her cousin....Eventually, however, they gave way; the money might be useful. She had been working ever since, for about ten years."
"When she described her work, her manner changed. She became animated,
almost passionate, having been subdued before. Though her work was only
in a clerical capacity (she had been promoted once or twice), she spoke
of it with love. It was her daily release from prison, the only time
she was allowed out; it was her window on the world; it was the entirety
of her social life; it was air after suffocation."
And Barbara Kay on the gendercide disguised as "choice":
"Sex-selective abortion is feminist pro-choicers’ Achilles heel. For
it is clearly an aberration of abortion’s original purpose — just as it
would be an aberration if technology could identify sexuality in the
womb, and homophobic parents were choosing to abort gay and lesbian
"Yet feminists decades ago made absolute freedom of choice the litmus
test for support of women’s rights. Thus, regulation for any reason
whatsoever is seen as anathema to the movement."
"Silence is indifference. Gendercide is a hateful practice. Let that much at least be said."
