Great post on food and privilege from Renee at Womanist Musings It's something that was on my mind yesterday as I stopped by Whole Foods after work. I was able to purchase organic and fresh food, near to my work, which pays enough to allow me to make concious food choices. It is a priviledged thing to do and consider.
Very cool, but you wouldn't be able to get my mother to do it
More GOP Fuckery "She'll just have been guilted into making sacrifices she doesn't want to make, to honor someone else's mistaken perceptions about her morality.
All of these absurd barriers to termination are utter hogwash, rooted in the damnable fairy tale that women are incapable of making the best decisions for themselves and their own bodies (and, frequently, for the children they already have).
The reality is this: There is an inextricable link between the economy, the funding of social services, and abortion. If "pro-lifers" really wanted women to want to have babies, they would start arguing for universal healthcare, just for a fucking start, considering about one-fourth of women seeking abortions cite their own health or possible health problems with the fetus as reasons for the termination, owing to concerns including "a lack of prenatal care."
