Some time ago, Beatrice Faust:
If the women’s movement can be summed up in a single phrase, it is ‘the right to choose’.
But that statement has been shown to have an expiration date. I like how Time magazine rained on that parade in 2013:
In fact, Time magazine just featured a piece highlighting the fact that forty years after Roe v. Wade, abortion-rights activists find themselves having to vigorously and repeatedly defend abortion. They are discovering that younger women no longer necessarily see abortion as one of their fundamental rights.
