Abortion needs to be framed as a human-rights issue…. Like the Irish monks of the Dark Ages, Catholics should work to improve the educational, cultural, and moral environment of places where crisis pregnancies and abortions most likely occur.”

— Leah Mickens, letter to the editor, New Oxford Review (March 2009), p. 11.
