Abortion Needs Concern Not Subsidy

By Sid Z. Leiman

Eugene Borowitz, December 23, 1977

The author responds to Eugene B. Borowitz and Richard N. Levy, both of whom responded to his article "Subsidized Abortion: Response to a Call". (All of the above articles appear in this very same issue of Sh'ma.) In brief: Leiman writes that he respects and affirms the Roe v. Wade decision recognizing a right for each woman to make her own reproductive choices, but that he also believes some abortions are "non-therapeutic" and therefore unjustifiable. Women should have the right to have these "unjustified" abortions, Leiman argues, but the public ought not to fund them with taxpayer monies. Leiman agrees with some elements of Borowitz's and Levy's responses, but takes issue with a number of their positions, and their portrayals of his own positions.
