Pro-choice author Katha Pollitt says country is shifting in the pro-life direction

By Sarah Terzo

Katha Pollitt explained in a 2014 interview why she wrote her pro-abortion book Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights

“I wrote this book because all you have to do is open up the newspaper and see the way things are going. Since, 2010 when the Republicans were so successful there have been 205 new abortion restrictions passed in the states, and, even more than the restrictions- the discourse. You can just feel it shifting. You can feel it shifting toward the anti-abortion side of language and the greater and greater defensiveness of the pro-choice side.”

Quoted in Carole Novielli,  “Pro-Abortion Author Criticizes Planned Parenthood, Says Tide Shifting in Pro-Life Direction.”
