Newsweek: Pro-choicers take abortion more seriously now

An article in Newsweek discussed how feminists and other pro-choicers take abortion more seriously now than they did in the past. The article claims that pro-choicers are more likely not to take abortion lightly

“Abortion, never an easy alternative for anyone, is even more daunting when you’re young. Back in the 70s – and even 80s – any woman worth her Ms. subscription knew she could pass around the hat in her dorm and collect a few hundred bucks for an abortion. Access was rarely a problem: every big city and most college towns had a clinic or at least an abortion doctor, and if he wasn’t Marcus Welty, well, at least he had an office… The climate has chilled; even ardent pro-choicers don’t treat “choice” so lightly.”

Michelle Ingrassia “Virgin Cool” Newsweek, October 17, 1994
