I've decided to have a new feature on the blog: a weekly round-up of links to blogs and news stories related to abortion/reproductive justice that I've been reading during the week. A lot of what's going on in that arena is covered in the American blogs, so I want this reader to have a Canadian focus (although stuff with a more general tone is also acceptable).
Feel free to link to whatever you've been reading in comments, or if there's something you think should be included, email me with a link: email@example.com.
Without further ado, here's what I've been reading this week:
A piece I wrote for Abortion Gang about rocking the boat.
Joyce Arthur on the need for a positive abortion law.
Tory MP Ron Bruinooge introduced a private member's bill to protect against "coerced abortions".
A few reactions to the Bruinooge bill, including my own.
A couple more reactions to Bruinooge.
More important people siding with the US on abortion and maternal health.
For women considering abortion: you will be ok.
Let me know what you've been reading about!
This is a great feature, pedgehog - thanks for the links!
Hey, pedge, here is a link to the ARCC-CDAC website. It outlines something very similar to what a woman suggested on your AbortionGang blog post. That a bill be made to protect women from coerced childbirth. Yes, I'm sure it's a bit tongue-in-cheek but if someone were to actually bring this forward maybe the 'all party ProLife' caucus would realize how foolish they're being? One can always dream, eh?
Yes the ARCC-CDAC press release is 'tongue-in-cheek,' hoping to show how utterly ridiculous and political the 'coerced abortion' bill is. Of course, the antis are taking the ARCC-CDAC statement totally seriously, posting outraged responses to it. They think so narrowly and rigidly that in the end it is even funnier.
