Dahlia Lithwick on Republicans & Choice
There's so much great stuff out on the 'net being written about Sarah Palin and her stance on issues important to feminist activists that I can't hope to link them all here. But I can't resist posting a note on this column from the ever-insightful Dahlia Lithwick of Slate on republicans and the illusion of reproductive choice. I think it's important to respect Bristol Palin's personal privacy when it comes to her pregnancy, but as many feminist writers have been pointing out, it's a personal privacy that the Republicans don't want any other woman to have. That's what makes the Palin's family decisions worthy of political attention.
