NARAL president admits pro-lifers have “won the public debate”

Pro-choice activist and former NARAL president Kate Michelman said in the New York Times in 1988:

“… The antiabortion side has in some ways won the public debate, captured the terms and framed the issues. There is very little discussion these days about how every dimension of a woman’s life is influenced by the right to reproductive freedom. We have to remind people that abortion is the guarantor of a woman’s full right to choose and her right to participate fully in the social and political life of society.”
