In 2001 and 2002, several newspapers wrote articles about the
emerging opposition to cloning and human genetic manipulation
among feminists, environmentalists, liberals and progressives.
Most press accounts reported this opposition as a "strange
bedfellows" or "odd coalition" story, and failed
to explain that the concerns of conservative opponents of cloning
are very different from those that motivate pro-choice liberals

- Judy Norsigian's letter to the editor in response to the
article acknowledges the similarities in positions while emphasizing
the important differences between supporters and opponents
of abortion rights.
