“It’s not legal, is it?”

Carrie Kilman at In These Times write a great article on abortion in the south and how across the Deep South, religion, culture and politics collide to make ‘abortion’ a dirty word.

From the article:
"At least once a month, I have women who call me and ask whether abortion is
legal. That type of misinformation is rampant,” says Ayers. “We’re in the middle
of the Bible Belt. It’s not just religion, it’s the fanatical religious aspect
that keeps stirring people up who are opposed to us.” Says June Ayers, owner of
Reproductive Health Services, one of the clinics that performs abortions in
Alabama.

It's a good read, so check it out.
