We the Men versus We the People: Reframing The Abortion Issue To Prevent Violent Escalation of The Culture War with Barbara Honegger

As White House Policy Analyst, Special Assistant to the Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, and Director of the Attorney General’s Anti-Discrimination Law Review at the U.S. Department of Justice in the Reagan administration, Barbara Honegger recounts her behind the scenes experiences in the White House championing women’s reproductive and civil rights.  She reveals the attitudes and duplicity of Reagan’s staff regarding women’s rights, the so-called “ERA alternative”, the secret plot to destroy the enforcement authority of all of the civil rights statutes using the lack of women’s rights as a legal battering ram, and her public revelations in the Washington Post and resignation as a consequence.  She details her “white paper” argument for a new and more solid basis on which to secure abortion rights. For more details on the case and other resources, see our blog post.
