#1 The Left's Attachment To Abortion reflects deep held conviction by its members (thank you 70es) that a women should not have to worry about consequences. It's not really marxism, it's hedonism (for women only) in marxist dressing.

#2 If you think about it, this is in fact human sacrifice towards, for a belief cult.
Barbarians at least did it in public.

#3 “Women were then given two dismal alternatives,” Reed wrote. “They could either seek a husband as provider and be penned up thereafter as housewives in city tenements or apartments to raise the next generation of wage slaves. Or the poorest and most unfortunate could go as marginal workers into the mills and factories (along with the children) and be sweated as the most downtrodden and underpaid section of the labor force”
Somehow, I think a number of women avoided that simplistic choice, including my wife and daughter.

#4 g(r)omgoru, I believe you are correct when it comes you the younger ladies, but I believe the old Democrats enjoy the original rational for Planned Parenthood (aka it trims down number of blacks).

Both working class and middle class girls could go into service — though the latter were pretty much restricted to being governesses and lady’s companions. Some taught in girls’ schools. But for the working class there were positions as housemaids, dairymaids, lady’s maids, nursemaids, cooks, laundresses, seamstresses and embroiderers, shop clerks, and so many other paid positions that required neitber marriage nor a factory. But factory work was easier and paid better than most service jobs. That’s why so many chose that over the traditional options.
