Thank you for writing this article and providing a contemporary framework for discussing this very divisive issue. I would extend this discussion to those working in the professional public health arena of maternal and child health where current policy, and, social and health interventions and initiatives in the area of prenatal and post-natal care are increasingly at odds legally, culturally, and ethically. This is an ongoing debate here in the US and also abroad especially in countries where abortion is illegal except under very strict circumstances. Ironically in most developing countries where aggressive prochoice policies are being promoted through the UNFPA, USAID, WHO, and other global health policy institutions as well as philanthropic institutions like the the Population Council, International Planned Parenthood, etc., most populations continue to resist pro-choice policies and legal frameworks often faced with funding tied to 'all or nothing' packages. It is a highly contentious arena to be in.... These commentaries and articles are very valuable for those of us working in this arena professionally.
