While the 1970s were many things to many people, for Poet Ruth Moloney Cowgill the 1970s were when motherhood itself came under attack.
After all, it was in the 1970s that a new movement began insisting that it only took a third grade education to raise children as though almost anyone could take a mother's place. To support this new theory, daycare centers were quickly established everywhere and both babies and little children were separated from their mothers.
It was in 1973 with the Supreme Court's decision in Roe vs. Wade that abortion became legal. Now more than 3,000 babies are aborted in the U.S. each day.
Ruth tackles these issues and much more in her new book of poetry, "Roe vs. Wade."
