more from Left2Right's David Velleman on letting Roe go

http://left2right.typepad.com/main/2005/01/letting_roe_go_.html
Some good questions here. I know feminists might feel abandoned by those of us who want to reconsider our position on abortion rights. Please do not let anger drive us apart. As I have said before http://blessourleftwinghearts.blogspot.com/2005/01/sojourners-pro-life-dems.html, our libertarian (or perhaps privacy-oriented) rhetoric is the same kind of rhetoric that the powerful use in their pursuit of an unregulated free market with no laws on worker safety, the environment, minimum wage, etc. I think we have to challenge our own positions when so many things that most of us believe in are undermined by our reasoning on one issue.
