A large, and largely annoyed group of national columnists can’t fathom why it’s so difficult to have what they’d classify as a “civil debate” on the issue of abortion rights. Why won’t so-called “radical feminists” sit down and talk about an issue on which there’s such clear division in the country? The reasoning escapes them.

In an attempt to perform a public service to national columnists everywhere, I explain why the abortion debate isn’t really a debate at all. In fact, it’s more like negotiating the terms of women’s surrender.
