From “America Is Not Ready for the End of Roe v. Wade” by the New York Times editorial board on May 6:
The principle is clear: Women and men should have
equal control over their own bodies …
Even more fundamental than our religious or scientific differences about when human life begins is that simple statement: Women and men should have equal control over their own bodies. To deny women the right to abortion is to deny them equality with men. Period.
Gender equality in the United States either is, or it isn’t.
