Hostage to Abortion Politics

3 09 2008

Marie Wilson – what a woman. On Gov. Sarah Palin as the choice for Republican VP:

“It reveals a deep distrust in women to make their own decisions about their bodies, and selecting this particular woman largely based on her stance on one issue is the latest insult not just to Governor Palin, but to women as a whole–and to our democracy.

“The crusade against choice pivots around the deep societal fear of women’s power to act as the authors of their own lives, the keepers of their own bodies. As Kristin Luker wrote in “Abortion and the Politics of Motherhood,” the real issue at stake is the fear that women will abandon their traditional role and decide not be mothers, if given the choice. ”

Pure gold.
