George, yes, a certain silence pervades columns such as Cohen’s today. But it’s a very loud silence, the sort you hear whenever anyone is carrying huge guilt (in his opening paragraph Cohen openly confesses to having callously arranged an abortion for a friend). I don’t think it was mere rethinking that drove Cohen to write, “I no longer see abortion as directly related to sexual freedom or feminism, and I no longer see it strictly as a matter of personal privacy, either. It entails questions about life…” Put two and two together and you know he also meant that it entails questions about death.
