Kate Michaelman Remembers the 1950s
Had to chuckle at this one
:Today many people have a stylized, ''Pleasantville" vision of the pre-Roe era in which I grew up. They imagine fondly that almost all families had a Daddy at the office and a Mommy in the kitchen; that almost all family relations were well-ordered and unthreatening; in short, that life looked like ''Leave It to Beaver" -- and that, with a few legal adjustments, it could do so again.
Actually, most families were like that in the 1950s. I don't fantasize that with a few legal adjustments, it could be so again. But consider what has happened since the 1950s. The social adjusters assured us that sex education would reduce teen pregnancy; that sure didn't happen. They told us that legal abortion would reduce the number of children born out of wedlock; again a result much to be desired turned out to be exactly the opposite.
She goes on to lie about Alito's record:He sought to uphold abortion restrictions that would have treated a grown married woman no differently from a child, forcing her to notify her husband in all circumstances, including abuse and rape, before obtaining an abortion.
In fact, there were exceptions built into the Pennsylvania law that simply required a woman to certify that she was fearful that her husband would abuse her if she consulted with him on obtaining an abortion.
