There's one Anna in publishing that we admire, and her name is Quindlen, not Wintour. The former NY Times Op-Ed columnist and current Newsweek contributor has a fascinating story in the latest issue of the newsweekly about a video created by the peace-and-justice activist group AtCenterNetwork, in which anti-abortion activists in Libertyville, Illinois were asked the simple but provocative question: If abortion were made illegal, how much jail time should a woman get for having one? The answers given were, well, revealing. As Quindlen put it:

You have rarely seen people look more gobsmacked. It's as though the guy has asked them to solve quadratic equations.


No matter where you stand on the issue of abortion, we're sure you'll think differently about things once you see AtCenterNetwork's video, which we've excerpted above (the clip in its entirety can be seen here) and read Quindlen's piece. Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
