“’Maybe human beings have not evolved enough to hold the complex idea that many things can be true at the same time,’ Paltrow of the National Advocates for Pregnant Women says. ‘We can feel a certain way. We can value the unborn as a matter of religion, ethics or experience, but we can’t do that as a matter of law and still value pregnant women.’”
The women at National Advocates for Pregnant Women are so brilliant, so hardworking, and have taught me so much. Lynn Paltrow and Emma Ketteringham, you guys articulate things brilliantly.
Thank you to NAPW for the work they do, and thank you New York Times for publishing this article and raising awareness.
