Supreme Court S Abortion Decision

FEATURED ARTICLES
OPINION
July 16, 1989
Abortion is a surface solution to a root problem. The root problem is the unwillingness of men and women to accept the consequences of their choice to have sex. The exercise of one's free choice to have sex has social consequences, be it babies or sexually transmitted diseases. With freedom comes responsibility. Any exercise of personal rights must be balanced against the rights of others, including the unborn. I applaud the court's move to correct the self-centered mentality of this "me-first" generation.

For nearly two decades American politics has been corrupted by the passions aroused by the Supreme Court's abortion decision, Roe vs. Wade. Washington is constantly besieged by this side or that coming to town to march, to protest, to lobby. And across the land communities are disrupted by the clash of advocates and opponents of abortion. More than 200 Operation Rescue demonstrators were arrested and toted off to jail in Brookline, Mass.
