Can This Be Pro-Life?

Nicholas Kristof writes in the New York Times, “There is something about reproductive health­ — maybe the sex part — that makes some Americans froth and go crazy. We see it in the opposition to condoms to curb AIDS in Africa and in the insistence on abstinence-only sex education in American classrooms (one reason American teenage pregnancy rates are more than double those in Canada). And we see it in the decision of some towns ­ like Wasilla, Alaska, when Sarah Palin was mayor there ­ to bill rape victims for the kits used to gather evidence of sex crimes.”
