"It's so incredibly insulting. The 24-hour waiting period implies that women don't think about it on their own and have to have the government forcing it on them. To me a lot of the abortion restrictions are about control of women, about power, and it's insulting."

--Dr. Susan Wicklund, author of "This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor," talks to the New York Times about "informed consent" laws, mandatory wait periods, and other attempts at controlling a woman's right to chose to have an abortion.
