John III

July 1976
National Review;7/9/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 25, p720
The article discusses the views of industrialist and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller III on the practice of abortion in the U.S. in 1976. Rockefeller's dialectical skill is as impressive as his imagery: anti-abortionism is coercive. He argues that anti-abortionism violates a woman's fundamental right to control what happens to her body and her future. Moreover, banning abortions does not eliminate them. It merely forces women to get dangerous illegal abortion. The author comments that Rockefeller's argument is lousy, but it is a strangely hypnotic concatenation of cliches.
