Very well put by Catharine Lumby.

We must remember though that the issue is not just abortion.
Pro-life organizations are also opposed to contraception, accurate sex education and the HPV vaccine. It seems that the goal is not to save babies but to put women back in their place.

Gloria Feldt, the former president of Planned Parenthood had this to say:

"When you peel back the layers of the anti-choice motivation, it always comes back to two things: What is the nature and purpose of human sexuality? And second, what is the role of women in the world?" Sex and the role of women are inextricably linked, because "if you can separate sex from procreation, you have given women the ability to participate in society on an equal basis with men.
