A common sense response to anti-choice activists

If you want to read a common sense response to all of the nonsense that’s been spread of late by anti-choice activists regarding recent decisions by Wake County politicians to limit the reproductive health care options afforded to female government employees, read this column in today’s Cary News by our own Adam Linker.

Here’s the big finish:

North Carolinians probably won’t agree on the morality of abortion anytime soon. But let’s agree on this: Abortion isn’t hurting town finances. A lawsuit against Wake isn’t a credible threat. And local government isn’t the place to hash out the ethics of legal medical procedures.”

    Could we make that picture a bit smaller? It’s sort of disconcerting.
