    A conservative political activist has called the abortion and marriage debates “one and the same issue,” contending that “abortion does at the physical level what homosexual marriage does at the institutional level.” What competing visions are at stake in several decades of social movement conflict over sexuality, gender, and the family? What do these conflicts teach about law’s capacity to effectuate social change? Is backlash inevitable or avertable? How are movements changed through conflict, in the encounter with law, and with each other?
