Since I'm, once again, pressed for time here:
"Silent Struggle: A New Theory of Pregnancy" - Carl Zimmer - My biggest problem w/this article is that, within the article, pregnancy's referred to as a "two-person operation". No, pregnancy is the ongoing work (until birth/miscarriage/abortion) of one person - the mother. Can you tell that I really really don't like assigning the term "person" to a fetus?
"House GOP Bans County Health Clinics From Providing Birth Control" - Fired Up Missouri - Let's quit pretending that the fundamentalists will pack up and go home after they ban abortion; they're aiming for birth control, too. Like many feminists and pro-choice activists have said for years: these people are concerned about something...but it ain't wee lil' baybeez.
"Red state women speak: How abortion restrictions affect them, their daughters" - Melissa McEwan - Especially read this if you're one of those "oh, let'em ban abortions! The red staters'll flock to the Democratic Party then!" people.
