The lady waving is, I was told, a professor at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Her sign is in honor of our appearance with the Genocide Awareness Project on the UAB campus on April 16 & 17, 2007. She seems to be unaware that she is making an invalid ad hominum argument. But since she values this, I will answer that because Seven Men (and Zero Women) voted in favor of Roe v. Wade, it must be 100% bad and out of touch. Also, approximately 52% of aborted children are female-more in places like India and the PRC. My favorite response to her argument, however, is to tell its proponents that I, a man, bore three children before my sex change. And while we are being absurd, I will suggest for the anti-abortion side that men as men, who can not become pregnant and are not as personally involved, will thereby actually be more reasonable and objective on this subject.
