Pro-Abortion Feminist Camille Paglia Admits Pro-Life Perspective “Has the Moral High Ground”
by Conor Beck | April 8, 2016
This does not happen every day. A major pro-abortion feminist supportive of “unrestricted access to abortion” admitted that the pro-life cause has the moral high ground.
It would be easy (and probably deserved) to castigate Camille Paglia for impressively and persuasively arguing the merits of pro-life arguments, only to confess that she remains pro-abortion. Yet, she opens up a debate that other feminists want closed, and she does so intentionally.
One of the highlights of her essay, published on Salon, is that she describes herself as “pro-abortion.” Like many pro-lifers, Paglia sees the term pro-choice as “a cowardly euphemism.” Moreover, she says that the pro-life fight on behalf of the defenseless is a more righteous one than the pro-abortion fight that claims it is “personally and professionally inconvenient” to carry an unwanted child.
This portrait of the pro-abortion side is not an unfair one. In a major U.S. Supreme Court case on a law regulating abortion clinics in Texas, 113 pro-abortion women collectively filed a brief to the court claiming that aborting their unborn babies helped advance their legal careers.
Despite supporting abortion, Paglia emphatically says:
Pro-choice Democrats have become “callous and extreme” about abortion. There is a moral hollowness at the core of Western careerist feminism, a bourgeois secular code that sees children as an obstruction to self-realization or as a management problem to be farmed out to working-class nannies.
