That assessment is from Frances Kissling, former head of “Catholics for Choice.” This assessment came in a recent opinion piece in the Washington Post. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/18/AR2011021802434.html
Kissling notes the “increasingly sophisticated arguments” of pro-lifers and also notes that public opinion is shifting toward the pro-life side. She states that “we can no longer pretend the fetus is invisible”, and argues for a change in pro-choice strategy. Her shift in approach moves away from an “absolute right to choose.” Her compromises are modest, and largely focus on an effort to preserve early abortions. She also argues for an expansion of abortion rights by calling for governmental funding.
But this story seems a further recognition that certain trends are moving in the pro-life direction.
