"Anti-Abortion Buddies"

by Edd Doerr

This letter was published in the July 2013 issue of The Progressive ---

"Anti-Abortion Buddies" (cap provided by editor)

Thanks for Abby Scher's excellent "Anti-Abortion Forces on the March" (May issue).

But we should also note that the conservative/Republican drive to return women to medieval patriacrhy is matched by their endless campaigns to have state and federal governments divert public funds through voucher and tax-credit schemes to church-run private schools, the vast majority of which indoctrinate kids with anti-choice ideologies.

Progressives need to fight both of these closely-linked campaigns.

Recall that both issues were on the ballot last fall in Florida and, fortunately, both lost.
