Today's topic is Abortion, and Female Callers take Precedence

program date: 
Tue, 02/02/2010

 With Joe on vacation, Abe takes on the warm, fuzzy, not-at-all divisive issue of Abortion.

 It's clear that the issue of abortion elicits a visceral reaction from certain members of the political right, in a way that few other issues do. The reason why is perhaps less clear than it might appear. On the surface, it is framed by abortion opponents as a question of the right of a human to not be murdered. Dig a little deeper though, and you find a fear of sexuality and sex -- particularly female sexualty, and the choice of young women to have sex on their own terms.
