An abrupt political shift to the right
There’s a special bitterness among abortion providers and activists because things weren’t supposed to work out this way. After 12 years of mano a mano with the antichoice Reagan and Bush administrations, a demoralized pro-choice movement was given a fresh blast of oxygen when Clinton moved into the White House in January 1993. Hopes were further buoyed when the new president not only immediately lifted the Reagan-era gag rule on abortion clinics but also ordered the Food and Drug Administration to begin testing RU 486, the “abortion pill, ” which when legalized maybe as soon as next year could make it easier for a woman to privately and quietly choose abortion.
When the votes were totaled in last November’s congressional election, however, a political earthquake shook America, and the pro-choice movement was standing right at the epicenter.
