Famous quotes containing the word alternatives:

    Clearly, society has a tremendous stake in insisting on a woman’s natural fitness for the career of mother: the alternatives are all too expensive.
    Ann Oakley (b. 1944)

    The literal alternatives to [abortion] are suicide, motherhood, and, some would add, madness. Consequently, there is some confusion, discomfort, and cynicism greeting efforts to “find” or “emphasize” or “identify” alternatives to abortion.
    Connie J. Downey (b. 1934)

    The last alternatives they face
    Of face, without the life to save,
    Being from all salvation weaned
    A stag charged both at heel and head:
    Who would come back is turned a fiend
    Instructed by the fiery dead.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
