It is immoral to parent irresponsibly. . . And it doesn't help matters
any when prime time TV, like 'Murphy Brown', a character who is
supposed to represent a successful career woman of today, mocks the
importance of the father by bearing her child alone, claiming that this
is simply another lifestyle choice.
-- Vice President Dan Quayle
(Rebuttal:) If Mr. Quayle feels that single parenthood is immoral
and that a woman cannot adequately raise a child by herself,
then he should see to it that abortion remains safe and legal in
this country.
-- Diane English, producer of 'Murphy Brown'
