Dissent in anti-abortion rights movement
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- A debate within the U.S. anti-abortion rights movement erupted recently in Washington when absolutist groups called for an all-or-nothing strategy.

The Los Angeles Times said Wednesday that, while there has always been a internal debate between absolutist and incremental groups in the anti-abortion rights movement, some members recently called for a more complete strategy.

Many absolutists criticized the minor victories the movement has had in recent years and alleged that many activists are simply using the effort to reap monetary support.

"We've been promised for almost 40 years that the strategy of electing Republicans would get us a Republican Supreme Court that would end abortion, and that has not happened," Colorado Right to Life President Brian Rohrbough told the Times.

To express their displeasure, such activists have begun a campaign oriented toward an increased push for legislation that would ban abortion nationwide.

The Times said other anti-abortion rights activists have said such infighting will likely only weaken their movement's stance on the topic.
