I am not going to take a position on pro-choice/pro-life in this particular post. Anyone who knows me knows where I stand and why.
However, this morning’s paper gave me cause to pause and wonder. An article covering the protests (for and against) on the anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade ran in this morning’s paper along with photographs. It was interesting to note that all of the individuals interviewed on the pro-life side fell into one of three categories: they were either (1) male; (2) female under the age of 20, and therefore born well after 1973; or (3) women who were pre-pubescent in 1973. There may have been some “mature” adult women in the crowd, but they were not featured in this article. Odd, no?
