Subsidized Abortion: Response to a Call

By Sid Z. Leiman

Eugene Borowitz, December 9, 1977

The author responds to a pro-choice pamphlet defending the use of public funds to subsidize abortions for poor women. While endorsing the basic legality of abortion, the author argues against the public funding of abortions, asserting that he refuses to be boxed in by the either/or model of the abortion issue which seems to be assumed by the pro-choice document in question. Not all abortions are wrong, the author argues, but not all of them are right either.
