When Choice Was Not an Option

A reminder of the frightening era pre Roe v. Wade emerged today from a box of old college stuff I was (finally) tossing. (What is the staying power of those papers you got an A on but don't remember writing?)
Taped to the back inside cover of the address book I used back then was information a cousin had passed along to me in case I or any of my college friends needed it:

Dr. V...., Washington D.C.
Call at office -- say calling from out of town and want appt. as soon as possible. 
Do not argue, do what he says -- no discussion. 
About $500. 
Legit. doctor; done at office.

Daughters and sons,  we fought hard for your right to choose. Now, that ongoing battle is in your hands.
