Hypocritical voices in the conversation about the anti-abortion law in Texas
Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Cynthia M. Allen is wasting no time congratulating herself and other like-minded Texans on the success of Texas’ new anti-abortion law. She sings: “But today, [the new law] will save the lives of approximately 150 children in Texas. “
Never mind that this law places targets on the backs of frightened and desperate women. Never mind that this law turns citizens into vigilant bounty hunters. The law persecutes women, all women. However, the hardest hit are women of few means who find themselves helpless, desperate and without options. They are very likely to be young and poor, regardless of their skin color.
