The Normalization of Abortion

This much seems apparent, that if something is normal it needs no justification. As far as I am aware, there are few parades in support of sleeping, falling in love or eating bread, and fewer websites in flagrant support of wearing clothes. Normal things are either self-evidently normal, or they ain’t normal.

Thus making an effort to change public attitude towards abortion, as the new campaign My Abortion My Life is doing, fails from the very outset. If abortion were ”a normal and necessary part of women’s reproductive lives and health”– i.e. if the creators of the website were telling the truth — there would be no need for their website.
