The president of the National Organization for Women (NOW) and second-wave feminist, Molly Yard, spoke in Rockefeller Hall about the abortion crisis in the United States.  “The reason people get abortions now,” she told her audience, “is because, for the most part, birth control fails or they are pregnant as a result of rape….  What we are being told by fundamentalists and by President [George H. W.] Bush is that if your birth control fails, you are forced to compulsory pregnancy.  And what we say in the National Organization for Women is that, to hell with that, we’re not going to take it.  We absolutely refuse to have compulsory pregnancy in this country.”     The Miscellany News
