Merle Hoffman, on abortion:

[It’s] a decision that she believes is irrevocably the woman’s, which in turn informs the rabid opposition to it: “The act of abortion positions women at their most powerful, and that’s why it is so strongly opposed by so many in society,” she writes in “Intimate Wars.”

I think she nailed it. That opposition to a woman’s power would also explain the systematic destruction of a Mother’s rights in some states.
