In a New York Times/Blogging heads clip, Linda Hirshman and Michelle Goldberg -- two pro-abortion feminists -- take on the issue of sex-selective abortion:
Both Hirshman and Goldberg seem (rightly) opposed to sex-selective abortion, but can't wrap their heads around the irony that they're unable oppose sex-selective abortion in the United States because it would be, in their eyes,an attack on "choice." As Goldberg admits in the end, "It turns our whole framework of choice on its head."
It seems that Hirshman and Goldberg would rather fend off any perceived threat to choice than side with a conservative on prohibiting sex-selective abortions. Then again, it's not all that surprising that they're personally opposed -- yet would continue to allow the destruction of baby girls just because they are girls.
We've all heard that line before.
