From Griswold, to Roe, to Casey, our courts have recognized that these personal decisions — the ability to take ownership of your own reproductive destiny — are inherent in the liberty and equality our Constitution protects.

I commend you for coming forward though Limbaugh’s attack was a disappointing reminder of how slowly attitudes change. In 1977, before I started law school, I took the same position with the Board of Directors of the teachers’ union to which I belonged and of which I was an officer. Another Board member called me a “whore” for suggesting that our health plan should cover the cost of birth control pills because I was divorced. The only comfort I can offer you is that after nearly 28 years in practice, I find my brothers at the Bar less hostile than that former colleague or repugnant Rush.
