Head of Group Backing Right to Abortion to Step Down
Kate Michelman said today that she would step down as president of Naral Pro-Choice America, ending 18 years at the helm of the country's most vocal group advocating abortion as a legal right for women.

Ms. Michelman, 61, became one of the grandes dames of the reproductive rights debate by interpreting her mandate broadly. She campaigned for state and national politicians who supported abortion rights, testified at Congressional hearings, started national advertising campaigns, worked to expand access to clinics providing abortions, and protested and marched in the streets.

1. She was a strong leader, I wonder what NARAL will do now?

I hope they have someone ready to fight to replace her. The abortion fight will probably get ugly again once the Republicans get kicked out of the White House and the incoming Democrats start trying to protect women's rights.

There are few things that anger the far right more than women or minorities who want the right to make their own choices.
