Deep thinking for the weekend

Head over to Bitch Ph.D. for a fascinating post on abortion rights and feminism. Dr. B. suggests that expressing certain reservations about abortion rights (e.g., in the third trimester, or for sex selection) is like questioning a woman's ability to think about her situation and decide for or against an abortion—essentially saying that you know better than that woman does. See the comments section of that post for an especially thoughtful discussion between Dr. B. and dozens of contributors.
