    Underground Railroad: A civil war phenomenon working for abortions


    http://newyorkmetro.com/nymetro/news/features/15249/index.html

    I tell her I’m upset that people like her have such a hard time getting abortions, and besides, I remember being young and being (more than once) in a similar fix. I don’t tell her about the differences: how I always had Blue Cross Blue Shield and never went past seven weeks.

    Most Haven hosts are white, Jewish, well schooled, and political. Some are empty-nesters with beds to spare and memories of the sixties and seventies women’s movement; many are young idealists with matchbox apartments and roommates who don’t mind an extra body crashing in the living room. Meanwhile, most of the women helped by Haven are black and Latina, with GEDs or less, low literacy skills, and not much civic moxie.

    As gay marriage advocates also present theis case as one of Civil Rights, our unofficial Civil War becomes more and more real.
